Solgar Vitamin D3 1000iu provides the active form of vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, to help build and maintain strong bones and muscles. Vitamin D3 is also supportive to the immune system.
Vitamin D is unique among essential nutrients, in that it is a vitamin that transforms into a hormone. Once ingested, vitamin D converts into a metabolite called 25-hydroxycholecaliciferol [25-OH-D3] in the liver, after which it converts into its active form 1,25 dihydroxycholecalciferol hormone, and like other hormones, it functions as a chemical messenger functions.
Once it is produced in the kidney, the active form of vitamin D triggers several essential processes including:
- Mobilisation of calcium and phosphorus from bone tissue
- Absorption of calcium and phosphorus form food
- Thyroid and parathyroid function
- Nerve function
- Immune function
