Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the body from sunlight and only a small amount can be obtained from food. The winter season and most all sunblock products inhibit the body's ability to produce optimal levels of Vitamin D. As a result, Vitamin D3 supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure your body receives an adequate supply. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary to help support the growth, development, and maintenance of bones and teeth in both adults and children. It is also required for calcium and phosphorus absorption and utilization. In its active form, vitamin D works with calcium to help control bone formation by helping to regulate calcium levels in the blood.
