Recent research indicates that a large percentage of the population suffers from vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency. This can be from a lack of adequate nutritional intake and natural exposure to sunlight that often is compounded by the frequent use of sunscreens or excessive clothing which blocks harmful UV rays which helps to optimize vitamin D protection in the body.
The major function of vitamin D is to promote calcium absorption from the gut and help calcium to transfer across cell membranes which contributes to strong bones It also allows optimal calcium metabolism for a calm and contented nervous system. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of magnesium, iron and zinc, as well as calcium.
