Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol) vs Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)
Vitamin D3 is the bioidentical form of vitamin D synthesized in the skin when exposed to sunlight. It is the preferable form as it has been found to modulate 25(OH)D levels for a longer period of time when compared to vitamin D2. According to recent research:
- Vitamin D3 is approximately 87% more effective in maintaining preferred serum 25(OH)D concentrations
- Vitamin D3 promotes greater storage of vitamin D than does vitamin D2
