STANDARD VITAMINS NUTRINA Vitamin D3
Vitamin D is called the sunlight vitamin because the body produces it when the sun’s ultraviolet B (UVB) rays strike the skin. It is the only vitamin the body manufactures naturally and is technically considered a hormone. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that has properties of both a vitamin and a hormone.
It is required for the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorous. It is needed for growth, and it is especially important for the normal growth and development of bones and teeth in children. It also protects against muscle weakness and is involved in regulating the heartbeat.
Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption – essential to forming and maintaining strong bones.
Recent research suggests vitamin D may also provide protection from osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and cancer. *
