Calcium absorption is increased by vitamin D

In the event of decreased calcium levels in the serum due to low dietary intake or increased demand of calcium due to growth, pregnancy or lactation, the synthesis of the hormonally active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) is increased leading to increased intestinal calcium absorption
