Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vital nutrient in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D1, D2, and D3. It helps the growth and development of bones and teeth, and improves resistance to a wide variety of diseases.
The body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D is also digested from certain foods and supplements.
Vitamin D has several important functions, the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and facilitating normal immune system function. Adequate vitamin D is important for growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance to disease.
Many people receive inadequate exposure to sunlight and often have trouble absorbing vitamin D. A simple blood test can check the levels of this vitamin in the body.
