VITAMIN D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods. It is also produced when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin. Most Vitamin D supplement is not absorbed from your body because it is manmade. 

Vitamin D is needed for promoting calcium absorption in the gut. It has other roles in human health such as reduction of inflammation, modulation of neuromuscular and immune function.

Vitamin D Deficiency can lead to diabetes, arthritis, heart failure, cancer, osteoporosis, obesity and many other disease and or problems. Too much Vitamin D may cause rickets (bowing of the legs) especially with Infants and children.
