Vitamin D3 Vitamin D3 also known as cholecalciferol is catalyzed into its active form calcitriol in the liver with the help of the enzyme 25-hydroxylase. Calcitriol binds to the vitamin D receptor located in the intestine and increases the serum calcium levels by enhancing the gastrointestinal absorption of the phosphorous and calcium. It also increases the reabsorption of calcium from distal renal tubule. Glucosamine Glucosamine is an amino sugar occurs naturally in the body.
