The ideal way to obtain your daily requirements of vitamin D.
Major Role of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and to prevent hypocalcemic tetany.
It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts.
Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen
Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and Osteomalacia in adults
Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis
Vitamin D other roles in the body:
Including modulation of cell growth.
Neuromuscular and immune function.
Reduction of inflammation.
Many genes encoding proteins that regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis are modulated in part by vitamin D.
