Vitamin D3 is the type of vitamin D the human body produces in response to sun exposure and research has shown that the body prefers vitamin D3 over D2 when both forms are readily available in the body. In its hormone like state, Vitamin D3 controls phosphorus, calcium, bone metabolism and neuromuscular function.
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic with recent estimates indicating greater than 50% of the global population is at risk. Without sufficient levels of Vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone anomalies such as osteomalacia (soft bones) or osteoporosis (fragile bones).
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends that you obtain vitamin D from sunlight, nutrient dense food, and dietary supplements in order to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.
Vitamin D levels should be monitored and contained within acceptable limits: 40-60 ng/mL or 100-150 nmol/L of 25 (OH) Vitamin D. (Conversion ratio: 1ng/mL equal to 2.5nmol/L).
