Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is a fat-soluble vitamin, which increases the intestinal absorption of minerals (i.e., calcium, magnesium, etc.) and also helps in the prevention and treatment of vitamin D deficiency diseases like rickets, osteoporosis, etc. This research was designed to evaluate the impact of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment on the physicochemical and thermal properties of cholecalciferol using the modern analytical technique. The cholecalciferol sample was divided into two parts. One part of the sample was considered as the control sample, while the other portion was subjected to the Biofield Treatment remotely by a renowned Biofield Energy Healer, Alice Branton and was termed as the treated sample. The powder XRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes were significantly altered ranging from -71.04% to 85.29% and -58.83% to 712.16% respectively, whereas, the average crystallite size was significantly increased by 6.81% in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The particle size values were significantly decreased by 76.95% (d10), 40.84% (d50), 17.44% (d90), and 34.30% [D (4,3)], thus, significantly increased the surface area by 152.23% in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The latent heat of fusion and the maximum thermal degradation temperature were increased by 5.60% and 8.5%, respectively in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The total weight loss was increased by 4.76%; however, the residue amount was significantly decreased by 75.1% in the treated sample compared with the control sample. The Biofield Energy Healing Treatment generates a new polymorphic form of cholecalciferol which might offer better solubility, absorption, bioavailability, and thermal stability. The Biofield Energy Treated cholecalciferol would be more efficacious in the nutraceutical/pharmaceutical formulations for the better therapeutic responses against rickets, osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, etc. It can also help to enhance the intestinal absorption of minerals like calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron, and phosphate.
