For the maintenance of normal bones, teeth and muscle function
Vitamin D is a fat soluble nutrient which supports your body in many ways. Perhaps the most well-known role for Vitamin D, is the one it plays in supporting the proper absorption and utilisation of calcium, and therefore, the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Additionally, Vitamin D helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a major risk factor for bone fractures among men and women over the age of 60. On top of all this, Vitamin D also helps to support normal muscle function and contributes to a healthy immune system.
It can be quite difficult to make sure that your diet provides all the vitamin D your body requires, the most common food sources are oily fish, liver, and eggs. However, your body can manufacture Vitamin D when your skin is exposed to the sun’s UV rays. For this reason, Vitamin D is often referred to as ‘The Sunshine Vitamin’.
In the UK, it is often recommended that we ‘top-up’ with Vitamin D, especially throughout the winter months, when the sun does not produce the UV rays required to trigger our bodies to manufacture Vitamin D.
