Vitamin D for potency and anxiety

October 29, 2019

Vitamin D deficiency occurs very often in our climate, especially in autumn and winter. One of the most important vitamins of group D, vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is synthesized in the body under the influence of sunlight, which is periodically lacking. This in turn translates into numerous ailments, which are often not associated with deficiencies by those who feel them. Meanwhile, too little supply and production of vitamin D is associated with much worse wellbeing, impotence disorders or skeletal problems.

Vitamin D - what role does it play in the body?

Vitamin D plays a very diverse role. It comes from food (it is a fat-soluble vitamin), but it is also largely produced in the skin, from where it goes to the liver. Then it undergoes metabolic changes and can be used by the body. Her basic roles are..:

  • maintaining proper structure and healthy skeleton condition,
  • support of calcium absorption from the intestine,
  • regulation of the processes of mineralization of bones and teeth,
  • increasing the efficiency of the body,
  • the regulation of insulin secretion in the pancreas,
  • blood pressure control,
  • prevention of anxiety and depressive disorders.

According to current scientific reports, the daily intake of vitamin D should be around 50 μg. Some groups of people are vulnerable to shortages and require more supply.

Vitamin D and mental health

From time to time, new reports are emerging on the role of vitamin D and its impact on health. One of the most interesting phenomena is the influence of vitamin D on brain health. Studies show that its deficiencies are associated with an increased risk of schizophrenia and faster management of brain damage associated with ageing. Increasing vitamin D3 supply is also recommended for the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders. Although vitamin supplements or dietary changes in terms of increasing its supply will not replace the drugs prescribed by a psychiatrist, they can significantly support the processes of treatment and accelerate the improvement of mood.

Vitamin D and potency

Vitamin D is also on the list of supplements that men with potency problems should use. Vitamin effectively increases the level of testosterone, affects the proper functioning of the heart and reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Proper functioning of the cardiovascular system translates into an improvement in the quality of sexual life. Not without significance is the influence of mental well-being on potency, and vitamin D is one of the substances supporting the mood and work of the brain.

How to supplement vitamin D?
