- Supplies vitamin D as cholecalciferol, a more bioactive form.
- Is necessary for proper absorption of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium.
- Comes from cholecalciferol (D3 rather than inferior D2).
Vitamin D is essential to strong bones and teeth. For many years a chief source of vitamin D has been milk fortified with this vitamin. Recent reports, however, indicate that fewer Americans, including children, are drinking milk.
Vitamin D can also be obtained through foods like fatty fish and eggs as well as through exposure to sunlight. This has also ceased to be an adequate source for many people. Concerns about skin cancer and increases in sunscreen use have led to decreases in sun exposure.
Vitamin D Deficiency Syndrome (VDDS) is what researchers have termed the lack of vitamin D. VDDS has the potential to result in serious health problems.
Most vitamin D supplements use ergocalciferol or vitamin D2, but Vitabase Vitamin D uses cholecalciferol, D3, a more bioactive form. This is the same form of vitamin D that comes from the skin’s exposure to sunlight.
