Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 1000iu (25mcg) with cholecalciferol is the most bioavailable form of vitamin D with a high potency and prolonged retention time. It is required for enhanced absorption and proper blood levels of calcium and phosphorous, promoting the health of bones, muscles, and other organs

who benefits from vitamin D3?
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a daily intake of 1000 iu or more for good health. The ones to benefit from this advice are typically men and women who have office jobs, men and women over 40, men and women with a darker skin of African Arabian or African descent, men and women with skin disorders caused by vitamin D deficiency. Optimal vitamin D levels are a must for a beautiful elastic skin, a good prostate function and strong and healthy bone structure. A low vitamin D status has also been linked to low testosterone levels and vice versa.

what distinguishes Vitamin D3?
• vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) softgels
• low levels linked to poor heart health
• free of vitamin A
• important for bone health: osteocalcin synthesis & calcium absorption

how does the active ingredient function in this product?
Fat-soluble Vitamin D3 is converted by the kidneys into the hormone calcitriol, the active form of Vitamin D3, which affects a variety of target tissues, including bone, intestine, muscle, brain, skin and immune cells. Calcitriol enhances calcium and phosphorous absorption and stimulates the synthesis of osteocalcin, an important structural protein in bone. Also, calcitriol is involved in proper cell differentiation (changing of cell function), including in prostate cells.

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that is obtained from food, sun exposure, and dietary supplements. Once vitamin D is ingested or synthesized in the skin, it undergoes two hydroxylation reactions in the body, first in the liver to calcidiol (25-hydroxycholecalciferol), and then in the kidney to calcitriol (1, 25-dihydroxycholecalciferol).
Vitamin D is critical for healthy bone development, remodeling and maintenance. It is also known to play a key roll in the maintenance of many other organ functions.

Why vitamin D3?
Two forms of vitamin D, vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol), are available in supplements and fortified foods. Although both forms can raise available vitamin D in the body, vitamin D3 produces three times the amount of available vitamin D metabolites with a longer retention time and higher activity potential.
Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 utilizes only cholecalciferol, the superior kind of vitamin D, to ensure the delivery of a high quality, more bioavailable form of vitamin D.

Vitamin D deficiency in the U.S.
Obtaining sufficient vitamin D from food and daily sun exposure can be difficult for many people. The US National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) have reported that the average intake of vitamin D has been declining and that many children and adults in the United States are likely to be vitamin D deficient. This trend may be due to increased body mass index (BMI), reduced dairy consumption, lactose intolerance, milk allergy, increased use of sun protection, and vegetarianism.

In breast-fed infants, human milk alone is not sufficient to provide the required amount of vitamin D. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends vitamin D supplementation in both infants and mothers. Women and older individuals also tend to have vitamin D levels that are lower than recommended levels. In the population above age 50 in particular, this may be caused by a slowed or compromised metabolism and poor absorption of vitamin D.

Adequate vitamin D is essential for optimal health. Supplementation of vitamin D with Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 can contribute to the required daily vitamin D intake and thus promote healthy bones, skeletons, immune function, and cell protection in both the young and the old.

Bone health
Vitamin D plays an important role in stimulating the absorption and maintenance of proper blood levels of calcium and phosphorous, critical minerals for bone development and preservation. Numerous studies have shown that vitamin D3 supplementation may support bone strength and reduce the risk of falls, fractures, and bone loss in elderly individuals, especially those with inadequate calcium and/or vitamin D intakes, postmenopausal conditions, and difficulty exercising. Vitamin D3 supplementation can support not only healthy bone development and growth in young children and adults, but also promote balanced remodeling and rebuilding of bones in a mature population

Cell growth and differentiation
Although a precise mechanism has not been elucidated, vitamin D has been shown to support balanced cellular growth and differentiation.
Vitamin D has an ability to modulate production and stability of proteins and associated factors that are critical for healthy cell proliferation, apoptosis, and differentiation. Additional pre-clinical and clinical studies are underway to discover further benefi ts of vitamin D in sustaining well-controlled cell function and growth.

Other benefits
Vitamin D has been shown to regulate both immune-promoting and immune-suppressing effects of immune cells and factors. Interactions among vitamin D receptors and other molecules on the immune cells enhance the communication between various signaling pathways, resulting in efficient and appropriate immune responses. In addition, this basic vitamin may play a signifi cant role in cardiovascular health by regulating blood pressure (through balanced hormone secretion), heart and vessel muscle function, and normal immune response. A growing body of research on vitamin D also suggestes benefits of this vitamin to normal mood and blood sugar regulation, and overall mortality and well-being, although additional studies are necessary for better understanding of the modes of action.

Should I get the vaccin against COVID-19 or not? On vaccines, ivermectin, paracetamol and fever 

By late April most older adults in the Netherlands will have received an invitation from the government or their physicians to get vaccinated. My own invitation came in this past week, quite a bit earlier than expected. 
 
To be honest, it took me much longer to decide than anticipated. And no, it wasn't just because of all the health scares around the AstraZeneca vaccin due to rare thrombosis incidences. 
 
In general, I'm a fan of vaccinations. As a child I received all of the vaccins that were given to us, with no questions asked.
When travelling to Brazil in 2002, I also followed the guidelines to get vaccinated against yellow fever and hepatitis B. 
 
Like most people, I've also been in awe about the speed at which vaccines were developed for COVID-19. Unlike some, I'm also not as concerned about the use of new mRNA technology to develop the Moderna and Pfizer vaccins. What does appal me though is the high cost for these vaccins, that run in to almost €20 for those high tech vaccins as opposed to just about €2 for a traditional vaccin like Oxford AstraZeneca.
What's worse is that those vaccins don't even offer absolute protection and people may be reinfected with a newer virus strain. Or they may require yearly booster vaccins. 
 
As I was pondering whether or not to get vaccinated, a Youtube video passed by in which dr. John Campbell interviewed dr. Pierre Kory. 
 

Influence of the moon on our behaviour

For the longest time, people have felt the influence of the (full) moon on their behaviour.
Especially on cloudless nights, many of us feel an urge to go outside and enjoy watching the full moon. Some will even go so far that they will go on a nightly hike or bike ride.
If this urge still persists today, how influential must the moon it have been in the past when we only could rely on light of the sun, moon and fire?

This is why so many people believe how lunar cycles can and do influence many other aspects of our behaviour and health.
The most persistent one is about its influence on menstruation cycles, fertility and even on the gender of babies. It's not too difficult to understand where this belief comes from: after all, a lunar cycle is almost as long as the average menstruation cycle.

However, until recently, scientists haven't been able to confirm most of the claims.
Only a short while ago it was confirmed how indeed, the full moon does have an impact on the length of our sleep. Even those who live in an urbanized environment, feel the effect of the full moon on their sleep cycle, even though it is far less pronounced than for indigenous people living without artificial light.

About time to explore whether the moon cycle really affects other aspects of our health and/or behaviour.

Can vitamin D help combat infectious diseases like COVID-19?

Most people know how important vitamin D is to maintain good bone health, but less well known is how it improves immune health. 
Until recently that is, when a study was published about hospital patients with COVID-19 were treated with a special form of vitamin D (calcifediol, which is how vitamin D looks like once it is converted in the liver, which may take up to a week).
The difference in outcome was quite remarkable: there was only one casualty among patients that were treated and far fewer had to be transferred to intensive care. Since then there's been a vastly increased interest for vitamin D supplementation.
 
We decided to dig a little further and found compelling evidence for its efficacy. Actually the evidence has been around for several years already, but was slow to trickle down to the general public (or physicians). 
 
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many people are wondering how to keep themselves healthy. You know that social distancing, working from home and staying inside in general is one way to protect yourself, but are there other measures you can take?
 
Boosting your immune system is one of the best things you can do because it is your body's key defense when it comes to fighting a virus. Even if you are exposed to a virus, the coronavirus COVID-19 or others, if your immune system is strong, you have a better chance of not getting sick. 
Vitamin C is a popular choice for supporting immunity, but another key nutrient for your immune system is vitamin D. 
 
It turns out that vitamin D, is every bit as important as its vitamin C or other antioxidants whenever the immune system is under attack, like during a cold or flu.
 
Here’s how this underestimated vitamin can help boost immunity and fight viral infections.
