The Importance of Vitamin D

Vitamin D functions as a hormone, a chemical messenger, that has widespread effects in the human body.  For example, adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.  In addition to its role in the development of strong bones, vitamin D is important for optimal cardiovascular, neuromuscular, and immune health.*


Vitamin D Deficiency

Obtaining sufficient vitamin D from natural food sources and sun exposure alone can be difficult.  For many people, supplementation is necessary to meet their daily needs.  Groups with a particular risk of vitamin D deficiency include:

·         Breastfed infants

·         Older adults

·         People with dark skin

·         People who have limited sun exposure

·         People with fat malabsorption

·         People who are obese or who have undergone gastric bypass surgery

Vitamin D3 vs. Vitamin D2


Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is approximately 87% more potent in raising and maintaining serum 25(OH)D concentrations and produces 2- to 3-fold greater storage of vitamin D than does equimolar D2.  Given its greater potency and lower cost, vitamin D3 should be the preferred treatment option when correcting vitamin D deficiency.
