Sunlight is the most important source of vitamin D. In addition, dietary intake of vitamin D is often insufficient to prevent a deficiency, especially when there is inadequate exposure to UV radiation from the sun. That is why most people have a deficiency in vitamin D, particularly during the winter months, and certainly in the northern hemisphere, and this also applies to athletes.
Since vitamin D plays an important role in the absorption of calcium in the body, on muscle contractions and immunity, a vitamin D deficiency is often the cause of various health problems, including an increased risk of bone fractures, chronic musculoskeletal pain, and viral infections of the respiratory tract. In addition, scientific studies have shown that correcting a vitamin D deficiency in athletes can promote both (explosive) strength, reaction time and balance, and thus improve sport performance. That is why athletes are advised to carefully monitor their vitamin D status via regular measurements of 25-OH-D (vitamin D3) in the blood.
The dosage required to achieve the optimal blood value is different from person to person, and also dependent on the living conditions. The 'desired' dosage, depending on the situation, is at least 1,000 IU per day up to 10,000 IU per day if a deficit needs to be corrected in the short term. There is also a scientific consensus that a dose of 1,500 to 2,000 IU per day is sufficient to achieve and to maintain the ideal blood value, even in case of insufficient sun exposure. Since the 6d VITAMIN D3 DROPS contains 1000 IU of vitamin D per drop, an athlete can, based on the health practitioner’s recommendation, measure his / her "ideal" dosage.
6d VITAMIN D3 DROPS provides only cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, as this form is superior to the less active ergocalciferol (vitamin D2). To guarantee stability and to ensure good absorption, MCT oil has been chosen as carrier, supplemented with cherry oil for a pleasant cherry flavor.
In short, the 6d VITAMIN D3 DROPS is the ideal supplement for athletes with insufficient sun exposure (e.g. indoor sports), especially during winter months, and / or for those athletes that are prone to vitamin D deficiency.
Take 1-3 drops (1,000 – 3000 IU) per day, or the amount advised by your health practitioner.
