Yes. Vitamin D3's major role is acting as an immune regulator thereby potentially acting against some forms of cancer and may be good for the heart as well aside from its role in getting calcium to your bone. The list of benefits is very long but many still require further evaluation. Since the side effect profile is quite good, I have been recommending vit D3 to my patients for over a decade.
