Vitamin D can be synthesized by the skin in response to sunlight exposure. It can also be sourced from plants and is known as Ergocalciferol D2. Its’ animal equivalent is called Cholecalciferol D3. Both vitamin D2 and D3 must be converted (hydroxylated) into their active form as they do not have any direct function alone. The activation of vitamin D2 and D3 takes place in the liver and then kidneys.
