Vitamin D can be made by your body when your skin is exposed to sunlight, which is why vitamin D is often referred to as ‘The Sunshine Vitamin’. However, despite the fact that our bodies can make this valuable nutrient, it is thought that Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies in the world.
Vitamin D is used by the body in many important processes including:
Helping to support healthy bones and teeth
Supporting the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium
Supporting the healthy function of the immune system
Contributing to normal muscle function
