Vitamin D3Description: Jarrow
D3 (cholecalciferol) is derived from fish liver oil and sheep’s wool and is free of vitamin
A. Vitamin D3 is converted by the kidneys into the hormone calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D3, which affects a variety of target tissues, including bone, intestine, muscle, brain, skin and immune cells.* Calcitriol enhances calcium
and phosphorous absorption and stimulates the synthesis of osteocalcin, an important structural protein in bone.* Also, calcitriol is involved in proper cell differentiation (changing of cell function), including in prostate cells.
