Each capsule contains:Vitamin d3 - 800 IU.www.adcock.com.Scheduling status:Not scheduled.Proprietary name and dosage form:Vit. D3-Gap (capsule).Pharmacological classification:D 22.2 Vitamins.Pharmacological action:The physiological role of vitamin D is to promote absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphate and for normal calcification of bones. The mechanism by which vitamin D acts to maintain normal concentrations of calcium and phosphate in plasma is to facilitate their absorption in the small intestine, to enhance their mobilization from bone and to decrease their excretion by the kidneys.Exposure of skin to ultraviolet rays in sunlight results in formation of cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). Calcitriol appears to act by binding to specific receptors in the cytoplasm of the intestinal mucosa and subsequently being incorporated into the nucleus leading to the formation of calcium binding protein that results in increased absorption of calcium from the intestine. Calcitriol may also regulate the transfer of calcium ion from bone and stimulate reabsorption of calcium in the distal renal tubule, thereby effecting calcium homeostasis in the extra cellular fluid.A deficiency of vitamin D results in inadequate absorption of calcium and phosphate. In infants and children, lack of vitamin D results in defects in bone growth known as rickets. In adults vitamin D deficiency results in osteomalacia or adult rickets which is most likely to happen during times of increased need for calcium during pregnancy or lactation.Identification: Vit.
