What is it Vitamin D?

Do you need Vitamin D Supplements? Vitamin D, the ‘sunshine vitamin’ is integral in calcium and phosphorus metabolism, to maintain healthy bones, reduce fracture risk, teeth, and muscles. It has been shown to improve muscle strength and performance even without exercise, so it’s important for those less mobile. It facilitates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from food in the intestines, through the gut wall and into the bloodstream.  If your  levels are too low, the absorption of calcium from the gut can be reduced, by up to 90%.
