D, also known as 25-hydroxycholecalciferol, calcidiol or abbreviated
25-OH Vit D, is the main vitamin D metabolite circulating in plasma.
Vit D is the storage form of vitamin D in the human body.
activity of 25-OH Vit D has been reported on intestinal calcium adsorption.
levels of 25-OH Vit D are important indicators and/or corroborators
of mineral metabolic problems.
D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble prohormones, which
encourages the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous.
D is a powerful pre hormone vitamin that serves many functions in
concentration of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)] reflects vitamin D produced
in the skin and obtained from food and supplements.
studies use plasma 25-OH-D as a measure of vitamin D status.
generally accepted that of the circulating vitamin D metabolites,
serum 25-OH vitamin D (25[OH] D) measurements best reflect clinical
D status is best determined by the serum 25 (OH) D concentrations
because this reflects dietary sources as well as vitamin D production
by UV light in the skin.
vitamin D deficiency, serum levels of 25-OH vitamin D3 are usually
vitamin D you take, the higher the 25 (OH) D levels in your blood.
D in the form of 25(OH) 2 is a potent immune system modulator.
