Vitamin D, we've all heard of that. But is Vitamin D as good as one claims? Does not Vitamin D just sit in the sun? Can you just swallow extra Vitamin D and what are the differences in Vitamin D?
The health council advises to take 10 mcg or 400 ie a day. For older people who are over 70 years old, the advice is 20 mcg. But is that enough?
All of them ask for different answers. We will try to give some tips in the vitamin D soup.
We are happy to provide you with a lot of reading pleasure and questions.
Different types of vitamin D?
Vitamin D2 or D3?
Although D2 as D3 are both vitamin D, there is a small difference.
The difference between vitamin D2 and D3 is that D2 has an additional CH3 group (on carbon atom 24), as well as an additional double bond (between carbon 22 and 23).
Important? Not really. Only at a higher dose, it is wise to take D3 because it is better absorbed. From 600 ie or 15 mcg (same) so use D3!
Can you just swallow Vitamin D?
Yes! Vitamin D is a safe to ingest vitamin that can be consumed up to 3000 days a day. If you already swallow extra vitamin D or a multi-vitamin, simply pick up the units and calculate the total.
Make sure you get plenty of natural light so that the vitamin D can be converted!
The sun does give Vitamin D?
The sun does give vitamin D?
No, unfortunately, the sun does not give you vitamin D ...
But the sun does require you to convert vitamin D into your body so that something happens to the vitamin D you get in.
Whether you are taking vitamin D out of food or from a pill, the sun (the UV light) converts this vitamin D into the skin so that it becomes active in the body.
Do not I get too much Vitamin D3?
We often hear this question on our customer service.
For all, the values of vitamin D in the blood are different. That is also no problem and not so much. But there is an average you really should have. This value should be about 80 nmol / l. (forget the nmol / l and remember the number well)
Often we hear people have values of 20 ... that's actually too low.
To get this value up you need some things:
• Good Vitamin D
• Sunlight and much outdoors
• And a little luck that your body quickly absorbs the vitamin D.
If you are going to have extra vitamin D swallow then check it out if you have a doctor at once. This can check the amount of vitamin D you have through the blood.
Pills, capsules or drops of Vitamin D?
Does not matter! What you find easy, fun or nice to use!
Take note of the drops that peanut oil is often used to solve the vitamin D. If you're sensitive to it, search for a liquid form without this peanut oil.
Vitamin D is an oil or fat soluble vitamin, so do not use vitamin D drops in water.
Take note of capsules if you are eating vegetarian, capsules are usually made of gelatin. In that case, choose a vegicap.
400ie, 1000iu or 75 mcg?
Bother all those differences, nevertheless it is not very difficult!
IE or IU is the same! International Units or International Units is only a difference in language.
So that was easy anyway?
3000IE or 75mcg ... is exactly the same. Divide by or x 40.
Just look: 75mcg x 40 = 3000, still 1 600IE: 40 = 15mcg.
If you now see vitamin D 25mcg, you know it's 1000ie.
A few examples:
Below are a few examples of different vitamin D products. They are almost all 3000 or 75mcg and are well recordable.
Ortho D3 2000: Just not 3000ie but liquid! The oil is a first-rate bio-rapeseed oil. 1 drop is already 2000ie
Lamberts Vitamin D3: 3000 in vegicap. Are you vegetarian? Then Lamberts has a vegi vitamin D of 3000ie
New Care D3: Dutch-Dutch 3000ie. Do you want a vitamin D from a real Dutch producer? New-Care sounds English but this brand comes from Dutch soil and takes into account our Dutch diet!

Where is Vitamin D good?
Nice vitamin is actually the vitamin D. Only where is this right now?
Well, we can not tell that. But a little bit is true.
Vitamin D is good for decreased resistance, by flu, (winter) dip and helps against inflammation and more. Would you like to know more, please feel free to contact us!
How much vitamin D should I swallow?
Do you want to swallow vitamin D? Vitamin D3 with a strength of 3000ie per day is no problem. Do not want to choose as high doses as a Vitamin D3 of eg 1000ie.
Use 1x per day and get sunlight or daylight so that the vitamin D is converted.
