Solgar Vitamin D3 4000 iu capsules help build and maintain strong bones and muscles. Vitamin D3 is also supportive to the immune system.
Vitamin D is unique among essential nutrients, in that it is a vitamin that transforms into a hormone. Once ingested, vitamin D converts into a metabolite called 25-hydroxycholecaliciferol [25-OH-D3] in the liver, after which it converts into its active form 1,25 dihydroxycholecalciferol hormone, and like other hormones, it functions as a chemical messenger functions. Once it is produced in the kidney, the active form of vitamin D triggers several essential processes including:
(a) Mobilisation of calcium and phosphorus from bone tissue
(b) Absorption of calcium and phosphorus form food
(c) Thyroid and parathyroid function
(d) Nerve function
(e) Immune function
