Vitamin D3, Cholecalciferol, Vitamin D2, Ergocalciferol, Calcidiol, Calcitriol.

What are all of these things? They are all referring to the various forms of vitamin D in our body, or in the food we eat. Vitamin D3 is also known as cholecalciferol, this is the form made naturally by the body in response to sunlight. Vitamin D2 is also known as ergocalciferol, and comes from plants. Vitamin D supplements come in the form of either Vitamin D3 or Vitamin D2. Calcitriol, or 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D if you prefer, is the active form of vitamin D in our body. When sunlight contains ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, and when it hits your skin cells, it turns 7-dehydrocholesterol into vitamin D3, meaning cholecalciferol. Vitamin D3 in turn binds to vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP) and is transported to the liver, where it gets converted to calcidiol, aka 25-hydroxyvitamin D.
