Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble pro-hormones that are best known for the role they play in supporting bone health. Vitamin D is able to target over 200 genes throughout the body and a growing body of research shows an important role in supporting a wide range of body systems.
The body makes vitamin D by converting vitamin D2 to D3, or cholecalciferol, when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is also the form which the body derives from dietary cholesterol. While vitamin D is available in both Vitamin D2 and D3 forms as supplements, studies have found vitamin D3 is the preferable form because it maintains active vitamin D levels for a longer period of time.
