Nutrient - Vitamin D

(Ergocalciferol D2, Cholecalciferol D3)

By Nutri People

Vitamin D can be made in the skin from sunlight and is stored in the liver. Deficiency causes rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. It works with calcium and phosphorous to form and maintain healthy bones. Magnesium and calcium aid its absorption and use. Vitamin D is also important for healthy blood pressure, skin, mood and muscle strength. Vitamin D2 is a non-animal form and suitable for people following a vegan diet. Vitamin D3 is obtained from wool and is the most bio-available form.
