Vitamin D:

Vitamin D is produced by the body when exposed to the sun. Vitamin D is important to control blood clotting but its major function in the body is to facilitate and control the absorption of calcium in the body without which we cannot form strong bones and teeth. A shortage of Vitamin D causes the body to supplement calcium levels in the blood by leaching it out of bone which, over a prolonged period will severely weaken the skeletal system.

Vitamin D is abundantly present in Cod Liver Oil, Mackerel and Herrings. Two canned pilchards contain enough Vitamin D to satisfy an adult's body's needs. It is also present in margarine, tuna, salmon and some cheeses.

Vitamin D1
Mostly known as just Vitamin D it is a fat soluble vitamin that is similar in chemical structure to some steroids. Although present in many food sources it is in minute quantities unless artificially enriched. The body relies almost exclusively on exposure to sunlight to be able to produce its own Vitamin D but it is also present (in small amounts) in fish and fish products.

Vitamin D2 also called Calciferol:
A transport or intermediate form of Vitamin D

Vitamin D3:
A crystalline unsaturated alcohol present in animal and fish tissue as the major form of Vitamin D.
