Vitamin D is an extremely important vitamin that has a hand in many functions of the body. Luckily, it is also called the sunshine vitamin and can be added to your body simply by going outside. Some people, however, are still deficient and in these cases a supplement may be prescribed. This way a person can have healthy bones, regulate insulin levels, support their immune system and much more. There are health risks, but the possibility of them are low.
- Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth
- In spite of the name, vitamin D is considered a pro-hormone and not actually a vitamin. This is because the body is capable of producing its own vitamin D
- It is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows the body the ability to produce sufficient vitamin D
"Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a protective effect against multiple diseases and conditions such as cancer, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis."
