Vitamin D3: A potent and active form of Vitamin D
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the form of Vitamin D produced by the body after sun exposure. Common vegetarian Vitamin D supplements are Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol), which is a derivative of ergosterol and is not produced by land plants or vertebrates. The healthy debate continues regarding whether D2 offers equivalent efficacy to D3 in the body, with the majority of the Scientific community suggesting Vitamin D3 is superior. We have added some downloads and references to our website to allow you to make up your own minds! Having reviewed a vast amount of published research, our conclusion is that Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the best form of Vitamin D for the body.
