Vitamin D3 is Actually a Hormone

Without sunshine or a source of ultraviolet light – or in people with very dark skin – Vitamin D production is significantly impaired.  Vitamin D3, in the form of cholecalciferol, is actually manufactured in the skin when ultraviolet light interacts with the enzyme 7-dehydrocholesterol to form it. From here, the liver and kidneys take over converting Vitamin D3 into the major circulating, active forms of Vitamin D called 25-hydroxy cholecalciferol and 1,25-dihydroxy cholecalciferol.  It takes on the life of a steroid hormone and is then distributed throughout the body for several metabolic processes.

The Many Faces of Vitamin D

Vitamin D3 is required by every cell, tissue, and organ in the body.  Due to its extensive distribution, its involvement in major metabolic processes goes without saying.  Some of the major functions carried out by Vitamin D3 is: adrenal gland health, age prevention and longevity, blood sugar regulation, bone metabolism, brain and nervous system development and function, digestion and nutrient absorption, fertility, hearing, vision, hair follicle health, cardiovascular health, immune system modulation, mood/mind/memory/and behavior, muscle and nerve health, pancreatic functioning, respiratory health, skin health, weight control, and blood pressure regulation.

Vitamin D3 is a Fat-Soluble Vitamin

Because Vitamin D3 is one of the body’s fat-soluble vitamins, Necessity Nutrition has maximized its absorption potential by combining the Vitamin D3 with organic coconut oil.  This allows the body to absorb the nutrient allowing it to reach the target tissues.

Making Necessity Nutrition’s High Potency Vitamin D3 a part of your health and wellness regime is one of the most critical steps towards vitality and balance.
