What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few food sources. Its functions in the body are wide ranging, from contributing to bone health to supporting immune function.*
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the same form of vitamin D that the body manufactures when skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) sunlight. Vitamin D3 may be more than three times as effective in raising concentrations of vitamin D in the bloodstream and maintaining those levels for a longer time than other forms of supplemental vitamin D.*
How does vitamin D support health?
Contributes to bone strength as proper levels create optimum conditions for bone formation.*
Supports proper functioning of the immune and nervous systems.*
Promotes the intestinal absorption of calcium.*
Supports fetal skeletal development and tooth enamel formation.*
Contributes to healthy levels of phosphorus in the body.*
