Overview - Vitamin D

Description of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a family of fat-soluble steroids. In the context of health and well-being, the most relevant members of the vitamin D family are D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol).

D2 and D3 are naturally occurring in relatively few food sources such as fish liver oil, egg yolk, mushrooms, or cheese.

The body also makes vitamin D in a process referred to as vitamin D synthesis, which is initiated when the sun’s rays, more specifically UVB light, encounter the skin.

The initially forms of vitamin D are inert. For the body to absorb and utilize any form of dietary or sun-induced vitamin D it must be activated twice. Once by the liver (turning it into calcidiol) and secondly by the kidneys (turning it into calcitriol) in a process called hydroxylation.

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the gut and works to balance calcium and phosphate concentrations. Without enough vitamin D bones become soft and fragile, and muscles begin to cramp and spasm. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with several poor health outcomes most prominently rickets (soft bones, skeletal deformities). According to the National Institute of Health (NIH, 2023), vitamin D deficiencies might be associated with "bone health, osteoporosis, cancer, cardiovascular disease (CVD), depression, multiple sclerosis (MS), type 2 diabetes, and weight loss."
