Description

General description

Vitamin D3 is also known as cholecalciferol which promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the body that regulates bone growth. It is commonly found in humans and animals produced on our skin when exposed to sunlight. It facilitates bone growth and mineralization indirectly by enhancing plasma calcium and phosphorus levels. It is synthesized from 7-dehydrocholesterol, a derivative of cholesterol.

Application

Vitamin D3 is used as an internal analytical standard for the quantitation of vitamin D3 concentration in dietary supplements, fortified foods or within a complex biological matrix using a variety of testing applications.
The active metabolite of vitamin D3 is calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3) encapsulated into polymeric nanoparticles, which finds the application in vitamin D3-based chemotherapy formulation study and in vitro evaluation.
