Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary to help support the growth, development, and maintenance of bones and teeth in both adults and children. It is also required for calcium and phosphorous absorption and utilization. In its active form, vitamin D works with calcium to help control bone formation by helping to regulate calcium levels in the blood. Vitamin D’s influence on the key biological functions vital to one’s health and well-being mandates that vitamin D no longer be ignored by the health care industry nor by individuals striving to achieve and maintain a greater state of health.
Why Vitamin D3 and not Vitamin D2?
Not all forms of vitamin D work equally well in humans. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) should be used in preference to vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), researchers said in a study published in the October, 2006, issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Vitamin D2 has been predominantly used in North America for vitamin D supplements, but Houghton, LA and Vieth, R, authors of the study from Acadia University said that an increasing body of evidence suggests that vitamin D3 has a greater bio-efficacy. In this study the authors also claimed vitamin D2 is inferior to vitamin D3 because vitamin D2 in synthetic form is less stable and has more impurities, which could potentially lead to a high risk of toxicity.
