Additional product info:
Natural conversion in the body occurs when Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun penetrate the skin and converts 7-dehydrocholesterol to pre-vitamin D3, which in turn becomes vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Cholecalciferol is hydroxylated in the liver to form 25(OH)D3. 25(OH)D3 is then converted in the kidneys to the most active form of vitamin D, 1,25(OH)2D3. Vitamin D production is reduced when there is a decrease in the intensity of the suns rays. There are very few dietary sources of vitamin D, especially if consumed sparingly. Hence, vitamin D supplementation is required.
