Vitamin D3 is responsible for the metabolism of calcium and phosphate ions. It increases the absorption of calcium and phosphate in the intestines, increases the reabsorption of calcium in the kidneys and the concentration of these ions in the blood. Inhibits the secretion of parathormone, a hormone that, among other things, releases calcium from the bones to increase its concentration in the blood. Thus, it facilitates bone mineralization and prevents calcium loss from the body.

Vigantol drops are used in the prevention of rickets in premature infants, children and adults, as well as osteomalacia in children and adults. In addition, Vigantol is indicated for the prevention of vitamin D deficiency and conditions associated with the risk of vitamin D deficiency in children and adults, as well as for supportive treatment in osteoporosis in adults.
