Vitamin D2 or D3

Aug 7, 2014

Dear Nelson,

You've had a few questions lately about vitamin D. I noticed you said you take 4,000 I.U. per day. I was given that prescription for 50,000 I.U. I noticed it said it was D2.

What's the difference? I have read D3 is the already active form. Why choose D3 over D2? I've also heard you still need sunlight to activate vitamin D supplements. It is all very confusing.

Response from Mr. Vergel

I have answered this before:

Vitamin D3 vs D2
