Vitamin D3 is one of the two forms of Vitamin D, the other being Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol). The majority of people who know of the fat-soluble vitamin are aware of Vitamin D due to its deficiency disease rickets. This deficiency condition is less common nowadays than in 1914 when the vitamin was first discovered, however, rickets is still apparent in less affluent countries.
Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption and utilisation of Calcium and Phosphorous which benefit Calcium levels in the blood and helps to maintain the health of bones and teeth. Vitamin D is essential to all ages as the vitamin is necessary for the normal function of a child�s immune system, and helps to reduce the risk of falling which is associated with postural instability and muscle weakness (a factor that is particularly important in those over the age of 60 years as falling is a risk factor for bone fractures). Vitamin D is required to help contribute to the maintenance of bones and teeth, muscle function, the immune system and the process of cell division.
