A sun vitamin - but why?
Vitamin D is also called sun vitamin because it is formed in the body through the enjoyment of sun rays. Especially after long winter months, sun rays on the skin are essential and do their vital effect on forehead, face, arms and legs. There, vitamin D is synthesized by the body. The precursors of vitamin D3 are formed by the body. So that the synthesis can be complete, you need direct sunlight on the skin. Therefore, daily movement in daylight, especially in spring, is essential for you.
Germany: widespread vitamin D deficiency
In Germany, according to National Consumption Study II of the Max Rubner Institute in 2008, about 82 percent of men and 91 percent of women are below the recommendation as concerns vitamin D intake.
Possible situations in which a vitamin D deficiency may occur:
• Little stay outdoors
• Covering large parts of the skin
• Advanced age
• Low sun position in winter
The German Society for Nutrition (DGE) sets up a serum concentration of at least 50 nmol / l 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the blood serum as a sign of good vitamin D supply.
Vitamin D deficiency even in the summer!
A possible vitamin D deficiency is an issue not only in winter!
People who are only a little outdoors, produce little vitamin D through sun rays. This issue concerns also, for instance, people who spend most of their time in buildings for professional reasons or people who wear long pants in summer instead of shorts. And who has daily time today to lie down in the sun? Only if as much skin as possible is uncovered outdoors can the body's own vitamin D be formed.
However, those who cover large parts of the body or use a very strong sunscreen - as usual today sun protection factor 50 - will hardly benefit from an outdoor stay. Even in people with darker skin color and older people, the body's own vitamin D formation is reduced.

The functions of vitamin D
Structure and is an essential, fat-soluble vitamin. Essential vitamins are vital for the metabolic processes of the body and cannot be produced by the organism itself or only to a limited extent.
Due to the limited possibilities of vitamin D synthesis under sunlight, the additional supply of food is important. Provide yourself with the essential and high-quality vitamin D3 from the capsules of ZeinPharma®. It gives you a nutritional supplement that plays a key role in the normal function of each of your body's cells:
• helps maintain normal muscle function
• supports the normal function of the immune system
• plays a role in the maintenance of normal bones and teeth
• has a function in cell division
• supports the normal absorption and utilisation of phosphorus and calcium
• thus also contributes to a normal calcium level in the blood
Higher bioavailability through high-fat meal
Increase the bioavailability of the Vitamin D3 capsules by consuming them along with a fat –rich meal. With this simple way, the vitamin D can be optimally absorbed. This is also shown in a recent study from 2015.
12 hours after consuming vitamin D, 32 percent more vitamin D was detected in the plasma when the vitamin was consumed with a fatty meal (see picture).
The reason is that vitamin D belongs to the group of so-called fat-soluble vitamins. Basically there are water and fat soluble vitamins. The fat-soluble vitamins need fatty acids to be absorbed in the small intestine.
Already the intake together with a glass of whole milk or butter bread is ideal.
Recommendation: Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is recommended to consume the capsules with or after the meal. So it can be well received and you benefit from optimal bioavailability.
