What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol) is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is known as the "sunshine" vitamin because it is formed in the body by the action of the sun's ultraviolet rays on the skin. Vitamin D is converted in the kidneys to the hormone calcitrol, which is actually the most active form of Vitamin D. The effects of this hormone are targeted at the intestines and bones. The major biologic function of Vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, thereby helping to form and maintain strong bones. It promotes bone mineralization in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones. Combine Vitamin D with an Omega 3 Fatty Acid for additional bone, join, and cardiovascular support.*

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient and can accumulate at toxic levels in fatty tissue; avoid excessive Vitamin D intake.
Occasional side effects reported with large doses of Vitamin D include a disorder known as hypercalcemia, which causes calcium deposits in soft tissues. Signs of the disorder include headache, weakness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, kidney problems and constipation. Consult a health care practitioner if you experience any of these symptoms after taking Vitamin D.
As always, consult your physician before taking supplements, especially if you have a medical or psychiatric condition, or are pregnant or lactating.
