Vitamin D is essential to strong bones and teeth. For many years a chief source of Vitamin D has been milk fortified with the vitamin. Recent reports though indicate that fewer Americans, including children, are drinking milk.

Vitamin D can also be obtained through foods like fatty fish and eggs as well as through exposure to sunlight. This also has ceased to be an adequate source for many people. Concerns about skin cancer and increases in sunscreen use have led to decreases in sun exposure.

The lack of Vitamin D has been termed Vitamin D Deficiency Syndrome (VDDS) by researchers. VDDS has the potential to result in serious health problems.

Most Vitamin D supplements use ergocalciferol or Vitamin D-2 but Vitabase Vitamin D uses cholecalciferol, D-3, a more bioactive form. This is the same form of Vitamin D made by the skin’s exposure to sunlight.
