Vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency in reality is a pandemic that is frequently undiagnosed and untreated [1-3] Research findings to date appear persuasive enough for clinicians to reconsider current clinical applicability of vitamin D supplementation.
The major source of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in the body is an endogenous, naturally occurring phytochemically produced steroidal molecule. This is biologically inactive and requires enzymatic conversion to active metabolites. The plant source vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is less efficient and more toxic. and will not be referred to in this paper. Vitamin D3 is converted enzymatically in the liver to 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D), the major circulating form of vitamin D, and then in the kidney to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, the active form of vitamin D.
