Vitamin D plays a substantial role in the regulation of calcium and maintenance of phosphorus levels in the blood, two factors that are extremely important for maintaining healthy bones. We need vitamin D to absorb calcium in the intestines and to reclaim calcium that would otherwise be excreted through the kidneys.

In humans, the most important compounds in this group are vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol).

THE SUN IS OUR BEST SOURCE OF VITAMIN D
There’s good reason why Vitamin D is called “the sunshine vitamin.” When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes Vitamin D from cholesterol. The sun’s ultraviolet B (UVB) rays hit cholesterol in the skin cells, providing the energy for Vitamin D synthesis to occur. Vitamin D has many roles in the body and is essential for optimal health. FACTORS THAT MAY DECREASE THE SYNTHESIS OF VITAMIN D FROM THE SUN:

• Living at high altitudes, particular during the winter.

• Excessive use of sunscreen.

• Skin pigmentation (Having a dark skin type).

• Environmental air quality (eg high level of air pollution).

• Weather conditions (eg dense cloud covering).
