About Vitamin D 2 1000iu Vegan
Vegan Vitamin D2 1000iu from Viridian. There are two major forms of vitamin D - vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol - plant derived) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol - animal derived - often from lanolin). Viridian prefers to use the D2 vegan form which has recently been shown to be just as efficacious as the D3 animal-based form.
Since our bodies can produce vitamin D by the action of sunlight on the skin, many experts consider it more of a hormone than a vitamin. Vitamin D is important to many body functions, particularly in bone health with its supportive role in calcium absorption and utilisation.
