Zuhuri Beauty/Glow Girl Wellness Products and Services offers Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU) softgels.
- Vitamin D3 is one of the most well know supplements in the health industry. It’s estimated that over 40 percent of the population is deficient in vitamin D, which plays a central role in everything from regulating mood to modulating immune cells in the body and beyond. Not only that, but it’s one of the few nutrients that’s difficult to get from food sources alone, making supplementation absolutely necessary in many cases.
- Vitamin D is available in two forms: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D3 is primarily found in animal foods, such as fish, liver, eggs and cod liver oil. Meanwhile, vitamin D2 is mostly in mushrooms and fortified foods, such as cereal.
- Both are also available in supplement form. The biggest difference between vitamin D2 and D3 lies in the way that they are metabolized in the body. One study published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism found that vitamin D3 was nearly twice as effective at increasing vitamin D levels in the blood compared to vitamin D2.
- For this reason, it’s generally recommended to select a vitamin D3 supplement whenever possible to optimize absorption.
