Mission, what are the functions of calcidiol, calcitriol and calcitetrol? Thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Nurur,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Calcidiol (25-hydroxy vitamin D) is a precursor of calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D, as well as calcitetrol (1,24,25-triol), both calcidiol and calcitetrol are still in the inactive form before being converted to calcitriol in the kidney.


After being converted into an active form, calcitrol can later work in the body, such as for:

Facilitate calcium absorption
Boosts immunity
Optimizing the work of muscles and nerves
Maintaining bone health
Reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, heart attacks, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and so on

Vitamin D can naturally be obtained from fish oil, fatty fish (such as salmon, cod, sardines, tuna), eggs, tofu, tempeh, soy milk, milk and its processed products, beef liver, mushrooms, and so on. Sun exposure to the skin can also stimulate the skin to produce more vitamin D.


That's all our explanation. For more details, please read a lot of biology books or other scientific articles.


I hope this helps.
