Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that occurs in two main forms: D2 and D3. Recent data has shown that Vitamin D3 has a more beneficial effect on the body. Vitamin D can be synthesised from the action of sunlight on our skin, as UVB rays convert a chemical in the skin to Vitamin D. Although many people don�t favour cod liver oil, this is a great source of Vitamin D as sunlight-converted Vitamin D is stored in the liver of many animals, particularly oily fish.
Vitamin D3 has numerous health benefits, starting with its contribution to normal immune system function. The vitamin is essential for the growth and development of children, contributing to a child's normal immune function. The vitamin also contributes to the absorption and utilisation of Calcium and Phosphorous and normal blood Calcium levels, two functions that work to maintain bones and teeth. Lastly, Vitamin D3 plays a role in the process of cell division to promote new cellular growth. The Vitamin also (understandably) helps relieve the symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency.
