Micellized Life D3 is a natural form of Vitamin D provided in a water-soluble micellized form. The micellization process produces tiny droplets (micelles) that are then formed into highly absorbable aggregate structures. Micellization greatly increases the solubility, absorption and bioavailability of our vitamin D3 over oil or emulsified forms.
Vitamin D, considered both a hormone and a vitamin, is manufactured in response to skin's exposure to sunlight and is essential to the body's absorption of calcium. Natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is four times more potent than synthetic vitamin D2. Calciferol in Latin means "calcium carrier." Strong evidence suggests that vitamin D is beneficial when combined with calcium and have a significant impact on overall bone health. Additionally, vitamin D has been the subject of numerous studies for its effect on the immune system.
Fats and fat-soluble micronutrients are insoluble in the water medium of the small intestine, so they must first be broken down through the normal digestive process to become water-soluble (aqueous) and be absorbed. The body's manufacture of water-soluble fat is also called micellization. It is caused by the action of lipase, bicarbonate and, most importantly, bile. Bile interacts with fat in a unique way. A bile molecule has a specific chemical structure in which one end is fat-soluble (non-polar), the other is water-soluble (polar).
Recently a process has been developed that renders fat-soluble nutrients totally water-soluble and smaller in molecular size (less than 0.1 microns referred to as "micelles."). These micelles are capable of direct transport into the "unstirred water layer" bordering the microvilli of the small intestine. Gaining entrance into the "still water layer" and immediate access to the intestinal lining are essential to the efficient and rapid absorption of fat-soluble nutrients. Micellized supplements require little digestive effort and result in minimal fecal loss.
Once nutrients become water-soluble through Micellization they are now up to 5 times more absorbable through the gastrointestinal lining. Micellization produces a very tiny and completely water-soluble cluster of fat molecules normally produced in the small intestine. Micelles are the body's basic unit of absorption for vitamins A, D, E, and K, as well as beta-carotene, essential fatty acids and lecithin. These nutrients are not adequately absorbed in humans unless they are micellized.
What contributes to poor absorption and metabolism of fat-soluble nutrients?
Restricted fat intake
High fat and sugar diet
Lack of aerobic exercise
Processed and Fried foods

Vitamin D's Co-factors:
Vitamin D has co-factors that the body needs in order to utilize vitamin D properly. They are:
Magnesium is the most important of these co-factors. In fact, it is common for rising vitamin D levels to exacerbate any underlying magnesium deficiency. If one is having problems supplementing with vitamin D, a magnesium deficiency could be the reason why.
Dr. David Perlmutter MD Brain Recovery
Deficiencies of vitamin D (natural form found the the body is D3) have been found in Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease. It is only in the past several years that vitamin D has been recognized as having far more role in human health than simply aiding bone formation. Vitamin D is now recognized as a potent fat soluble antioxidant. Several studies have indicated that vitamin D's ability to quench free radicals is even more powerful than vitamin E.
