VITAMIN D Check Test
At-home vitamin D test
Vitamin D is particularly important for the human body, as it is responsible for the absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate and zinc. Virtually every cell in our body has receptors for vitamin D, which means they all need an adequate level of the vitamin to function properly.
In humans, the most important compounds in the vitamin D group are vitamin D3 and vitamin D2. Vitamin D3 is produced naturally in human skin by exposing it to ultraviolet light, and vitamin D2 is obtained mainly from food. Vitamin D is transported to the liver where it is metabolized to 25-hydroxyvitamin D.
In medicine, a blood test is used to determine the concentration of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (including D2 and D3), which is considered the best indicator of vitamin D status. Currently, its deficiency is recognized as a global epidemic. Find out quickly if your vitamin D level is sufficient with the at-home test.
