Cholecalciferol, better known as vitamin D, is the key to our health. Up until now, vitamin D was considered to be a bone strengthener. However, as has now been discovered, there are vitamin D receptors in almost all organs and tissues. Thus, this unique vitamin has far-reaching effects on the metabolic processes in the intestine, brain, heart, pancreas, skin, lymphocytes, etc. Vitamin D is involved in a variety of metabolic processes and functions in the body. In the meantime, several studies have identified vitamin D as an important factor in weight regulation. In people with a high vitamin D level, a constant blood sugar level and a lower insulin sensitivity were observed. These people are less hungry and sleep better. Both are factors that affect body weight. In addition, it is assumed that there is a high number of vitamin D receptors in our fat cells, which, when activated, stimulate the body's own lipid metabolism. According to a study by the University of Oxford, gene receptors all over the body require enough vitamin D to prevent disease. Our genes need vitamin D to keep gene expression (transformation of genetic information) functional. Lack of vitamin D can lead to serious illnesses.
