Cholecalciferol, generally known as vitamin D3, is crucial for the maintenance of healthy bones, teeth, and muscles. It is made in the skin when it is exposed to sunlight and can also be found in some foods or supplements.
The following are some important facts regarding cholecalciferol:
- The skin produces cholecalciferol, a natural form of vitamin D when exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from sunshine.
- Some foods, such as fatty fish, egg yolks, and liver, contain cholecalciferol.
- The metabolism of calcium and phosphate, both of which are necessary for healthy bones, depends on cholecalciferol. It also controls the blood's levels of calcium and phosphate, which helps the body absorb food.
- The liver and kidneys transform cholecalciferol into its active form, calcitriol. The actions of calcitriol are then carried out by binding to particular receptors throughout the body.
- Cholecalciferol deficiency can cause rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, among other health issues. Additionally, it might make elderly persons more susceptible to fractures, falls, and osteoporosis.
- Supplements containing cholecalciferol are frequently used to treat and prevent vitamin D insufficiency. They come in a variety of formats, such as tablets, capsules, and drops.

Cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3, helps the body absorb calcium and maintain a healthy immune system to prevent or limit infections. It is often used as a medication for people who don't get enough vitamin D in their diet.
Vitamin D is essential for treating and preventing bone disorders such as rickets and osteomalacia. The body naturally produces vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight. However, sunscreen, protective clothing, limited sun exposure, dark skin, and age can prevent the body from getting enough vitamin D from the sun. Vitamin D supplements with calcium are used to treat or prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). It is also used in combination with other medications to treat low levels of calcium or phosphate caused by certain disorders such as Hypoparathyroidism, Pseudohypoparathyroidism, and familial Hypophosphatemia. In kidney disease, vitamin D is used to maintain normal calcium levels and promote bone growth.
