Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble vitamins. Both Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3 are in the same structural class and are very similar compounds. Vitamin D3 is produced in your skin naturally when it is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D2 is made by some plants and fungus in response to ultraviolet light.

Which one is more helpful when taken orally for Osteopenia?December 21, 2018 - 6:23pm
According to Healthline - Vitamin D3 appears to be better than D2 at improving vitamin D status. Speak to your doctor about what you should be taking to be sure.
