In fact food contains limited amount and it is therefore highly implausible to cover the need through the ordinary diet.
How D3Base Junior contributes to preserve healthy bones
Vitamina d performs a crucial role in bone mineralization process regulation promoting intestinal calcium and phosphorus uptake. Vitamin D status optimization is consequently essential in order to promote bone mass acquisition processes during the growth stage, until the accomplishment of bone mass peak, which may be considered the most elevated in terms of bone mass achievable in the lifetime, as a result of a regular growth2.
How D3Base Junior contributes to preserve normal muscle function
Vitamin D stimulates muscle tissue development contributing to calcium intracellular levels regulation, to differentiation and composition of contractile muscle proteins. Muscles represent main mechanic impulse for growth and bone tissues development, as load and tension exerted by muscle mass on bone influence strength and resistance and promote bone mass acquisition processes.
Which way D3Base Junior contributes to the immune system normal function
Vitamin D acts an important role in the immune system modulation and therein in response against infections. Immunoregulatory activity of vitamin D is proven by the presence of vitamin D receptors on the surface of several immune system cells and by the capability of stimulating production of antimicrobial compounds capable to defend the body from general infections.
