Not All Vitamin D is Created Equal
Do you get enough vitamin D? Or, equally important, are you getting the right kind of vitamin D?

Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes in two major forms: vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol).

However, the two forms can be drastically different.

A December 2010 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism discovered vitamins D2 and D3 are not used by the body in the same way.

Join special guest, Lorna Vanderhaeghe, MS, to find out which vitamin D you need and why.
