This is a mini-review of vitamin D(3), its active metabolites and their functioning in the central nervous system (CNS), especially in relation to nervous system pathologies and aging. The vitamin D(3) endocrine system consists of 3 active calcipherol hormones: calcidiol (25OHD(3)), 1alpha-calcitriol (1alpha,25(OH)2D(3)) and 24-calcitriol (24,25(OH)2D(3)). The impact of the calcipherol hormone system on aging, health and disease is discussed. Low serum calcidiol concentrations are associated… 
Association of Vitamin D Deficiency and Mood Disorders: A Systematic Review
TLDR
This review focussed on vitamin D receptors, VDR gene mutations, and pathophysiology causing vitamin D deficiency disorders finds low 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels are found to have a higher incidence of various mood disorders.
Unravelling of hidden secrets: The role of vitamin D in skin aging
TLDR
These findings support the concept that UV-radiation exerts both skin aging -promoting and -inhibiting effects, the latter via induction of cutaneous vitamin D synthesis.
Vitamin D and the central nervous system.
TLDR
The neuroprotective effect of vitamin D is associated with its influence on neurotrophin production and release, neuromediator synthesis, intracellular calcium homeostasis, and prevention of oxidative damage to nervous tissue.
Vitamin D Deficiency in Metabolic Syndrome Patients.
TLDR
This clinical research study focuses on correlation between Vitamin D and Metabolic syndrome and a possible inverse association between vitamin D levels and the prevalence of metabolic syndrome.
1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D and Klotho: A Tale of Two Renal Hormones Coming of Age.
TLDR
Together, liganded-VDR modulates the expression of a "fountain of youth" array of genes, with the klotho target emerging as a major player in the facilitation of health span by delaying the chronic diseases of aging.
D VITAMIN, COGNITION AND DEMENTIAS D VITAMIN, KOGNICIJA I DEMENCIJE
TLDR
Neuropsychological studies showed that the main domain of vitamin D brain function is on executive functions, and Vitamin D in the form of calcitriol, 1,25(OH)2D3, is the best available drug form.
A Review on the Potential Role of Vitamin D and Mineral Metabolism on Chronic Fatigue Illnesses
TLDR
It is proposed that chronic fatiguing illnesses might be result from mineral deregulations that are barely detected by routine laboratory workups because of compensatory changes in bone mineral stores.
VITAMIN D ACROSS THE LIFE SPAN1
Vitamin D is a secosteroid hormon with pleiotrophic functions and essential for normal development and health throughout the entire life span. Vitamin D deficiency has epidemic proportions worldwide
Vitamin D cell signalling in health and disease.

TLDR
A Vitamin D phenotypic stability hypothesis, which is developed in this review, attempts to describe how this vital hormone acts to maintain healthy cellular functions.

TLDR
A decline in the vitamin D/Klotho/Nrf2 regulatory network may enhance the ageing process, and this is well illustrated by the age-related decline in cognition in rats that can be reversed by administering vitamin D.

Vitamin D, aging, and cancer.
TLDR
The results suggest that calcidiol is mainly responsible for differentiation homeostasis, whereas calcitriol might be more involved in calcium homeOSTasis, therefore, an imbalance of calcidiola rather than calcitriols is a risk factor for cancer and chronic diseases.
New clues about vitamin D functions in the nervous system
TLDR
Results reveal previously unsuspected roles for 1,25-(OH)(2)D(3) in brain function and suggest possible areas of future research, including neuroprotective and immunomodulatory effects in neurodegenerative and neuroimmune diseases.
Vitamin D in preventive medicine: are we ignoring the evidence?
TLDR
Serum levels of 25(OH)D are the best indicator to assess vitamin D deficiency, insufficiency, hypovitaminosis, adequacy, and toxicity.
Vitamin D status, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, and the immune system.
TLDR
Vitamin D-deficient mice on low-calcium diets developed the most severe IBD, and 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment of mice onLow-cal calcium diets improved IBD symptoms, however, the best results for IBD were observed when the calcium concentration was high and 1-25( OH) 2D3 was administered.
1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 regulates genes responsible for detoxification in intestine.
TLDR
The effect of a single dose of 1,25-(OH)(2)D(3) on gene expression in the intestine of vitamin D-deficient rats supports the idea that vitamin D is a significant factor in detoxification and protection against environmental toxins.
Vitamin D and cancer
TLDR
The antiproliferative action makes 1,25-(OH)(2)D and its analogs a possible therapeutic tool to treat hyperproliferative disorders, among which different types of cancer.
Vitamin D in the aging musculoskeletal system: an authentic strength preserving hormone.
TLDR
In this review, the interaction between vitamin D and the musculoskeletal components of frailty are considered from the basic mechanisms to the potential therapeutic approach and it is expected that these new considerations about the importance of vitamin D in the elderly will stimulate an innovative approach to the problem of falls and fractures.

TLDR
There is evidence from patients with end-stage renal disease that high PTH concentrations are causally related to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and Activated vitamin D is able to increase survival in this patient group significantly.
Vitamin D metabolites and bone mineralization in man.
TLDR
It is concluded that 1alpha,25(OH)2D3 is not the sole biologically active metabolite of vitamin D in man and that the subsequent rise in serum phosphate concentrations along with the direct actions of 1 alpha-25-hydroxyvitamin D3, 24,25 (OH) 2D3, and possibly 25(OH-D3 on bone cells all participate in the restoration of normal bone formation and bone mineralization in vitamin D-deficient man.
Premature aging in vitamin D receptor mutant mice
TLDR
This study suggests that VDR genetic ablation promotes premature aging in mice, and that vitamin D(3) homeostasis regulates physiological aging.
