The two forms of Vitamin D supplements are D2 and the more potent D3. Healthy Origins® Vitamin D3 2,400 is key nutrient manufactured in a highly absorbable liquid softgel from. Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the body from sunlight and only a small amount can be obtained from food. The winter season and most all sunblock products inhibit the body’s ability to produce optimal levels of Vitamin D. As a result, Vitamin D3 supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure your body receives an adequate supply.
Why Vitamin D3 and not Vitamin D2?
Not all forms of vitamin D work equally well in humans. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) should be used in preference to vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), researchers said in a study published in the October, 2006, issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Vitamin D2 has been predominantly used in North America for vitamin D supplements, but Houghton, LA and Vieth, R, authors of the study from Acadia University said that an increasing body of evidence suggests that vitamin D3 has a greater bio-efficacy. In this study the authors also claimed vitamin D2 is inferior to vitamin D3 because vitamin D2 in synthetic form is less stable and has more impurities, which could potentially lead to a high risk of toxicity1.
