Vitamin D facilitates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, hence its importance for healthy bones and teeth. Often described as ‘the sunshine vitamin’, vitamin D is essentially produced by the body on exposure to the sun’s UV rays. However, vitamin D production is not the same in everyone and may decline with age. Certain foods can provide the body with additional vitamin D but in some cases, intake remains inadequate and may lead to vitamin D deficiency. This is why vitamin D supplementation may be necessary to meet individual needs and prevent deficiency.
By enhancing the body’s use of calcium and phosphorus, vitamin D supports muscle tone and mineralisation of the skeleton, and maintains dental health and immune system activity. All these vital functions may be impaired by a lack of vitamin D, producing symptoms such as bone abnormalities which can manifest as rickets in children or osteomalacia in adults. To prevent or correct such deficiencies, vitamin D therapy is available with the aid of dietary supplements. Two forms of natural vitamin D are used in such formulations: vitamin D2 and vitamin D3.
