Vitamin D can be made by your body when your skin is exposed to sunlight, which is why vitamin D is often referred to as ‘The Sunshine Vitamin’. However, despite the fact that our bodies can make this valuable nutrient, it is thought that Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies in the world.
Vitamin D is used by the body in many important processes including:
· Helping to support healthy bones and teeth
· Supporting the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium
· Supporting the healthy function of the immune system
· Contributing to normal muscle function
Vitamin D also helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a major risk factory for bone fractures among men and women over the age of 60.
It is thought that in the UK during the autumn and winter the sun does not get strong enough to produce the UV rays required for our body to produce Vitamin D. Vitamin D can be included in your diet, with the best sources being oily fish, liver and eggs, however if you feel you would benefit from a ‘top-up’ supplements can be helpful.
