Vitamin D3 vs Vitamin D2

Traditionally, Vitamin D2 was the only non-animal source of Vitamin D and therefore the only source suitable for a range of demographics including individuals with a Vegan or Vegetarian diet.

A 2011 study concluded that “D3 is approximately 87% more potent than Vitamin D2.". A 2006 article concluded that "Vitamin D2 should no longer be regarded as a nutrient appropriate for supplementation or fortification of foods.”
