It is also available as a dietary supplement. Vitamin D2, or ergocalciferol, is plant-derived, while vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is animal-derived. Vitamin D is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis. The skin synthesis is reduced by clothing, sunscreen, air pollution, older age, darker skin pigmentation, being indoors, winter season, and higher latitude. Vitamin D3 is the preferred form because it is more effective at raising and maintaining adequate levels of circulating vitamin D in the body.As scientific research into vitamin D matures, the ubiquity of its influence and breadth of its importance is becoming realized. To date, strong evidence supports vitamin D’s role in bone, teeth, muscle and immune health. Vitamin D supports strong bones and teeth by aiding in calcium absorption from food and supplements, helping to regulate calcium and phosphorus homeostasis, and regulating bone remodeling processes.Vitamin D deficiency leads to bone deformation and softening, manifested as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Along with calcium, vitamin D is needed for normal bone mineralization processes, and insufficient intake of these nutrients increases one’s risk for thin, brittle bones (osteoporosis), falls and fractures. Additionally, normal neuromuscular function requires vitamin D, and our immune system cells need vitamin D to effectively perform their intended function. Vitamin D receptors have been discovered in cells and tissues throughout the body and emerging research on its extraskeletal role is being investigated.Suggested Use: Take one softgel daily with a meal.Other Ingredients: Soybean Oil, Gelatin (Porcine), Glycerin, Water, Corn Oil.Contains SoyNo Color Added.
