Vitamin D3
Active components: Cholecalciferol

Physiological importance:
Vitamin D is also called the antirachitic vitamin, as it counteracts rickets. It regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus, in particular promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the intestine, regulates excretion of calcium and phosphorus via the kidneys, controls the incorporation of calcium and phosphorus in the skeleton and in this case also improves the exchange rate of calcium and phosphorus.
Vitamin D is especially important if the absolute supply of calcium and/or phosphorus or the relation of calcium to phosphorus in the feed is not optimum.
