The body uses vitamin D to regulate levels of calcium & phosphate, the nutrients which protect & nourish the bones, teeth, & muscles.
Vitamin D is crucial for maintaining healthy bones & the efficient metabolism of glucose. Most of the body’s vitamin D comes from sunshine exposure in the warmer months, & thus vitamin D deficiencies are much more common during the winter.
Vitamin D is also found in our diet in oily fish, red meat, eggs, & some fortified products.
