For most people, the best way to get enough vitamin D is by taking a supplement because it is hard to get enough through food. Although some foods are fortified with vitamin D, few foods contain it naturally. Vitamin D supplements are available in two forms: vitamin D2 (“ergocalciferol” or pre-vitamin D) and vitamin D3 (“cholecalciferol”). Both are also naturally occurring forms that are produced in the presence of the sun’s ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays, but Vitamin D2 is produced in plants and fungi and Vitamin D3 in animals, including humans. Many people have insufficient levels of Vitamin D3 because they have limited sun exposure. Also, people with darker skin tend to have lower blood levels of vitamin D3 because the pigment melanin) acts like a shade, reducing production of vitamin D3.


Take one tablet daily. For best results, allow tablet to dissolve in mouth before swallowing.

Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. Having the right amount of vitamin D3, calcium, and phosphorus is important for building and keeping strong bones. Vitamin D3 is used to treat and prevent bone disorders such as rickets. Vitamin D3 with calcium is used to treat or prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). Vitamin D3 is made naturally by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. Therefore, sunscreen, protective clothing, limited exposure to sunlight, dark skin, and age may prevent getting enough vitamin D from the sun. This is why supplementation with an excellent Vitamin D, specifically D3, product is important.
