ABOUT VITAMIN D
Due to our modern lifestyle, we do not get adequate amounts of Vitamin D, as required by our bodies. Vitamin D is naturally present in only a few food sources, and is also available as dietary supplements as well as in fortified foods
Vitamin D is an important factor for our overall wellbeing, and to maintain the health of our lungs, heart, brain, muscles and bones. It acts as a firewall and helps prevent infections.
The best part is that this sunshine vitamin can be produced naturally by the skin in the presence of sunlight. It is also found in food sources such as tuna, cod liver oil etc.
After absorption into the body, Vitamin D gets converted to its active form in the liver and kidneys. This active form helps to manage the calcium levels in the bones, guts and blood.
