Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cholecalciferol is a form of vitamin D, also called vitamin D3 or calciol. It is structurally similar to steroids such as testosterone, cholesterol, and cortisol (though vitamin D3 itself is a secosteroid). Cholecalciferol is synthesized in the skin from 7-dehydrocholesterol under the action of ultraviolet B light. It reaches an equilibrium after several minutes depending on several factors including conditions of sunlight (latitude, season, cloud cover, altitude), age of skin, and color of skin.show more
