Market launch of world´s first LED-Vitamin D-Booster

After 2 years of intense research and development in cooperation with the University of Hohenheim (Germany), LUXIDUM ventured a great step further into Vitamin D-Boosting Process Optimization.

Two-stage UV LED type combinations were tested on vitamin D synthesis rate and further photoproducts
(eg. lumisterol, tachysterol, toxisterol, suprasterol) in mushrooms. Based on these results we developed
a completely new and patented LED technology approach: LED2D® technology.

Our technology consists of two narrowband high performance UV LED with different center wavelengths switched in series (type B and type C) leading to a two-stage vitamin D synthesis process:
          stage 1 Priming of ergosterol, the precursor of vitamin D
          stage 2 Opitimized biosynthesis of vitamin D
→ Highest yield of vitamin D
→ Lowest yield of undesired photoproducts

All our Boosters and main components incl. light systems are manufactured exclusively in Germany!

Two-stage UV LED type combinations were tested on vitamin D synthesis rate and further photoproducts (eg. lumisterol, tachysterol, toxisterol, suprasterol) in mushrooms. B/C wavelength combination was found to be the most efficient regarding vitamin D synthesis combined with lowest yield of undesired photoproducts.

Luxidum developed a completely new and patented LED technology approach for the production of Vitamin D-Mushrooms in the world´s first LED-Vitamin D-Booster: LED2D® technology.
