Vitamin D functions: a precious ally for our body
While it is known as the vitamin D is essential to allow the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, there are many other activities that it carries out inside the body:
Promotes the action of antibodies
Optimize blood pressure
Prevents bone loss
Increases cognitive functions and memory
Reduces hypertension and relaxes cardio muscles
Decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes
But how is Vitamin D absorbed by our body?
The image shows the mechanism of vitamin D absorption in the human body, divided into its main phases
1. Conversion into Calcidiol
In a first step, the liver converts the Vitamin D2 of Shiitake mushrooms into Calcidiol
2. Conversion into active Vitamin D
The kidneys then convert Calcidiol into Calcitriol, the active form of Vitamin D
3. Diffusion in the Body
At this point, the blood system carries Vitamin D throughout the body
