Vitamin D – Healthy bones, thanks to the sun
Vitamin D is an essential substance for good bone health, due to its regulating function of calcium and phosphorus absorbed through nutrition.
Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced by our skin in response to
exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D is important as we age due to the increased risk of deficiency caused by a lack of sunlight, reduced synthesis and inadequate dietary intake.
It is important to have a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
