Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol, normally derived from animal
sources) is the form of Vitamin D produced by the body after sun
exposure. Common vegan Vitamin D supplements are Vitamin D2
(ergocalciferol), which is a derivative of ergosterol and is not
produced by land plants or vertebrates. The healthy debate
continues in the scientific community regarding whether D2 actually
offers equivalent efficacy to D3 in the body, with the majority of
scientists suggesting that D3 is superior. When people are
diagnosed with a deficiency of Vitamin D, physicians always
prescribe D3 to correct the issue due to their belief that it is
better utilized by the body.
Modern lifestyles mean we just don't get the level of Vitamin D
from the sun that our bodies are designed to obtain. Dietary
sources are minimal and a frightening proportion of society is
Vitamin D deficiency. Individuals with a suitable level of Vitamin
D in their diet and those who supplement are typically much better
equipped to fight off colds and ailments. There are links to
preventing many types of diseases by consuming adequate Vitamin D.
It also has reparative properties and often high levels of Vitamin
D3 are given to patients during treatment to recover from different
illnesses and diseases associated with Vitamin D
Vitamin D is linked to benefiting many ailments, illnesses and
diseases including some serious conditions. Those reported to
benefit from Vitamin D include:
* Autoimmune disorders
* Bone disorders (including rickets)
* Heart diseases
* Rheumatoid arthritis

I can not eat mammal products due to an allergy. This supplement worked for me, and raised my very low (12) vitamin D level up to over 50 in 3 months. 1 x a day and 2 every M, W, F. i take one a day now 5 days a week, to keep it there. easy to swallow !

You could check the manufacturer's web site where it says "Vegan D-3 is derived from a unique species of lichen, a member of the plant kingdom." rather than just post a negative review.
