Vitamin D, typically known as the “sunshine vitamin” because ultraviolet rays on the skin produce it, can also be obtained through supplementation.
Supplementation with vitamin D is especially important for those who live in the northern hemisphere, with long, dark, northern winters. It is especially important during the winter season as there is limited sunlight, and therefore the body isn’t able to produce its own vitamin D sufficiently.
Vitamin D plays a crucial role in bone growth and renewal as it stimulates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It also reduces calcium excretion and facilitates calcium incorporation into the bones, reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis.
