Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s stored in the liver and fatty tissues.
There are two forms of vitamin D – vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol or pre – vitamin D) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). The body manufactures vitamin D from cholesterol through a process triggered by the action of sunlight on skin.
It is estimated that 1 billion people have inadequate levels of vitamin D in their blood and deficiencies can be found in all ethnicities and age groups. Deficiency of Vitamin D can mainly attribute to lifestyle and environmental factors that reduce exposure to sunlight, which is required for UV – B induced vitamin D production in the skin.
Vitamin D3 offers a broad range of health benefits beyond its obvious role in bone health, as it may positively impact heart and arterial health, immune system function, maintenance of healthy glucose levels, and cognitive performance. Many of the body’s organs and tissues have receptors for vitamin D, and scientists are still teasing out its other possible functions.
Yet some people do not make enough vitamin D from the sun such as people who have darker skin zone, overweight people and older people.
There are many health practitioners that recommend that the best way to get enough vitamin D is taking a supplement to at least 1000 IU.
