What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin which is required for numerous functions in the body such as bone and cell growth, neuromuscular and immune functio, and it also play a role in preventing inflammation. For instance Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the stomach and intestines, which helps to keep the bones and joints strong. It also fosters healthy growth in the skin, renewing as well as protecting it from UV-B rays. With so many important functions it’s easy to see why we need it in our diet. Vitamin D is usually the easiest vitamin to intake as it can be obtained directly from the sunlight, produced in the skin. But during the winter months sunlight hours are drastically reduced and it can be dark by the time you leave work. There are also few foods which are a source of vitamin D, and even fewer that are suitable for vegans so taking a supplement can be a necessity for many of us, especially during winter months.
