The VHC Vitamin-D Test enables therapists and consultants to give immediate individual Vitamin D counseling on the spot.
Vitamin D was chosen by evolution to centrally control the change in body functions between winter sleep and summer activity. That is why our vitamin D self-production is linked to the daily sun exposure and thus the change of the seasons. Today, this central control system does not fit into the life situation of many people, and at least 50% of Europeans are clearly too low.
A vitamin D deficiency, that is a value less than 30 ng / ml, has serious consequences for the metabolism, because almost every cell in the human body has receptors for Vitamin D. Al these cells need Vitamin D to regulate their activity. If the vitamin D concentration in the blood is lowered, important body functions are gradually deactivated.
The negative effects of Vitamin D deficiency on health are impressive:
- Muscle Strength and Stiffness, Endurance, Bone Density and Bone Fractures, Osteoporosis, Dental Health, Cancer Prevention, Auto Immune Diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes, Hypertension, Insulin Resistance Diabetes, Preeclampsia, HIV, Infectious Disease, Driving weakness, Winter tiredness, Depression, Mental disorders, Alzheimer’s, Autism, Hair loss, Gray hair, … and is growing.
An optimized Vitamin D level can prevent chronic diseases and positively influence their course. A good Vitamin D level further increases performance, resistance, stress tolerance and overall quality of life. Experts therefore emphasize the importance for each individual to check their Vitamin D status on a regular basis and to counteract it in the case of an under-supply in order to achieve a healthy blood concentration of at least 30 ng /ml Vitamin-D.
Recently, advice on Vitamin D by the physician, pharmacist, nutritionist or therapist became much easier. The new health monitoring platform Vitality Health Check running the VHC Vitamin-D test makes this possible. Just a small drop of blood from the fingertip is required, to test Vitamin D levels everywhere and quickly. After just 15 minutes, a quantitative result is obtained, as previously with some days delay from a special laboratory. The VHC Vitamin-D enables the therapist or consultant to determine the individual Vitamin D gap and to give their clients immediate supplementation recommendations if required. A small revolution in regard to qualified, customer-friendly health advice.
