ULTRA VITAMIN D
ULTRA VITAMIN D contains vitamin D3 in the form of cholecalciferol, which contributes to normal calcium absorption and maintains bone and tooth health.
Vitamin D has several key functions:
- helps absorb calcium from food ref 1
- has a nonsignificant regulatory effect on parathyroid hormone level ref 2, thereby lowers the bone mass reduction ref 3
- provides adequate bone regeneration and mineralization ref 4
- has a direct stimulating effect on muscle tissue ref 5 and thus reduces the risk of falls
- support for normal functioning of the immune system ref 6
ADEQUATE INTAKE OF VITAMIN D IS A PREREQUISITE FOR EFFECTIVE OSTEOPOROSIS THERAPY ref 7
VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION SHOULD BE USED BEFORE BISPHOSPHONATE OSTEOPOROSIS THERAPY ref 8
