What is Vitamin D
Vitamin D is produced by the body in response to sunlight exposure on the skin. It can also be found in multiple food sources like oily fish, red meat, egg yolk and fortified foods too.
The relation of food sources of Vitamin D to animal products means that those following a vegan diet may need to supplement this more than someone eating a meat or fish based diet. In winter months when people in cold or mild/wet climates spend more time indoors there can also be a need to supplement Vitamin D and ensure the body is getting enough of it.
What Does it do?
Vitamin D works in the human body to regulate and properly absorb calcium and phosphate. This in turn helps support the immune system, teeth and bone health. If you do not get enough Vitamin D every day it can affect immunity, and the quality of your muscles and bones. Vitamin D deficiencies can lead to osteoarthritis and weaker bones.
