Found in many dietary sources such as fish, eggs, fortified milk and cod liver oil, Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol) is a fat soluble vitamin often referred to as the sunshine vitamin. This is because the ultraviolet B (UV-B) rays of the sun initiate our skin to synthesize its own vitamin D. Since the body's ability to manufacture Vitamin D declines with age, the elderly and people who don't go outside much may become deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D is vital for many bodily functions and aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
Vitamin D helps regulate blood levels of calcium and phosphorus and can increase the absorption of these minerals into bones if needed. Vitamin D does this by stimulating DNA to produce transport proteins, which bind to the calcium and phosphorus and increase absorption through the small intestine. This stimulating feature is unusual for a vitamin and normally a function of hormones, hence why many health experts refer to vitamin D as a “prohormone.” By aiding in the regulation and absorption of calcium and phosphorus, Vitamin D can help support healthy bones and teeth, especially as we age.
