Often referred to as ‘the sunshine vitamin’, Vitamin D is synthesised in the skin through exposure to sunlight and can be manufactured naturally by the body through sunlight falling on the skin or ingested in food.
Vitamin D is vital for the proper adsorption of calcium and the use of phosphorous to form healthy bones and teeth. As much as 60 percent of the UK population is Vitamin D deficient and low levels have been linked to serious health problems in later life.
The key benefit of vitamin D3 is seen in its contribution to maintaining normal levels of calcium in the body which in turn maintains healthy bones and teeth.
The skin’s ability to convert vitamin D into its active form is seen to deteriorate with age, increasing the importance of maintaining the correct levels of vitamin D3 to help prevent the development of age-related bone conditions such as osteoporosis.
