Info about vitamin D.3

Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, is not a vitamin in the classic sense. It is a so-called prohormone, i.e. a precursor of a hormone. A prohormone itself usually has little or no hormonal effect, but is only converted into an effective hormone through metabolism. In the case of vitamin D.3 Cholecalciferol is the precursor of calcidiol, from which the hormone calcitriol is later formed.
