Vitamin D mainly exists in two forms, namely D2 (Ergocalciferol) and D3 (Cholecalciferol).
D2 (Ergocalciferol) is produced by plant while D3 (Cholecalciferol) is either produced by the human body in response to sunlight or can be obtained via diet and supplements.
Vitamin D3 helps your body absorbs calcium.
Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight.
Vitamin D has several important functions. The most vital functions are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function.
Sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.
If your body doesn’t get enough vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis).
Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body.
It assists in:
Vitamin D plays a significant role in the regulation of calcium and maintenance of phosphorus levels in the blood. These factors are vital for maintaining healthy bones.
People need vitamin D to allow the intestines to stimulate and absorb calcium and reclaim calcium that the kidneys would otherwise excrete.
Vitamin D deficiency in children can cause rickets, which leads to a severely bowlegged appearance due to the softening of the bones.
Similarly, in adults, vitamin D deficiency manifests as osteomalacia, or softening of the bones. Osteomalacia results in poor bone density and muscular weakness.
Research has shown that vitamin D may help protect against acute respiratory infections and pneumonia.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, some preliminary evidence surfaced suggesting vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of both infection and severe illness. Therefore Vitamin D has become one of the top supplements during this pandemic.
