Vitamin D - Why is it so important?

Why is Vitamin D3 in the Vitligo Store? Vitamin D is not just a vitamin. It is also a neuro-regulatory, steroid hormone that affects 3000 to 25000 different genes in the body. For this reason, it is one of the most important nutrients for our health.

Vitamin D - Why is it so important?

Vitamin D3 is the same vitamin D that our body produces in the skin and which is responsible for the pigmentation process after exposure to sunlight (or phototherapy).

Since vitamin D3 plays an important role in the pigmentation process , it is symptomatic that people suffering from Vitiligo are having lack of this vitamin. Whether this is the cause of Vitiligo is not yet proven. However, research shows that this is at least one of the aggravating factors. Vitamin D deficiency increases several health risks such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, tuberculosis, cancer (breast, colon and prostate), multiple sclerosis, depression, obesity and many others. People with Vitiligo are known to lead to impaired autoimmunity.

How Does Vitamin D3 Work?

Vitamin D is important for the proper functioning of immune cells and for calcium absorption. This is why it is essential for maintaining healthy bones and teeth and for the skin's ability to produce pigment. Only in the presence of vitamin D is calcium in the skin able to fulfill its role and regulate skin pigment cells (melanocytes).


In the summer months, stop taking the pills and get vitamin D naturally - by sunbathing on the sun. You can read more about the effects of sunlight on Vitiligo in our article: "Summer - what's specific about?"
