Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients maintain your bones, teeth, muscles, and cognitive health. Vitamin D3 is also crucial to boosting your immune system to its peak performance. A lack of vitamin D3 can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults. In older adults, Vitamin D3 helps reduce the risk of osteoporosis and can also help prevent falls and fractures.
Vitamin D is the only molecule that we create ourselves from light and turn into a hormone (OH25D). Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the skin from a process that depends on ultraviolet B rays (UVB) found in sunlight. If you are not getting adequate sun exposure two or more times a week you may need a Vitamin D3 supplement.
