How is Divisun used?
Doctors prescribe Divisun to prevent or treat osteoporosis (bone loss). Vitamin D3 controls, inter alia, the uptake and incorporation of calcium into the bone tissue. The body can create vitamin D itself under the influence of sunlight and a small portion is found in certain foods. People who rarely go outside can develop a deficiency of vitamin D. As a result, the body is not able to absorb enough calcium and the bones become brittle. This process is called osteoporosis. People with osteoporosis have a greater risk of fractures and the collapse of the vertebrae. The latter is accompanied by symptoms such as back pain, muscle pain, changes in posture and a reduction in height. Osteoporosis occurs more often in older people: bones become weaker as age progresses. Elderly people who are badly injured are also less likely to be outside. Divisun ensures that there is sufficient vitamin D for the bones to absorb calcium and improve bone density.
