What is Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble nutrient that is essential for human survival. It is produced by the human body when it has been exposed to the sun. Vitamin D is commonly added to dairy products and is also found in foods such as fish and eggs. Many people are deficient in Vitamin D, this could be due to not getting enough sunlight or Vitamin D rich foods. As the sun is a major source of Vitamin D this means that countries that do not experience much sunlight will need to get their Vitamin D through food or supplements.
Vitamin D contributes to the absorption and utilization of Calcium and Phosphorus. Therefore, adequate amounts of Vitamin D is essential for bone health, immunity and general health and well being. Vitamin D3 supplements are essential for bodybuilders, power lifters and other athletes that perform heavy resistance training because of its ability to reduce inflammation, maintain healthy bones, muscles and immune functions.
