GLOSSARY
VITAMIN D

Vitamin D

 

How does it work?

Vitamin D is an essential fat soluble vitamin required for its role in the regulation of calcium and phosphorus levels, remodelling of bone, immune enhancement and modulation, secretion of insulin, skeletal and heart muscle function and parathyroid health.1 Vitamin D is required for mineral absorption into bones therefore is important for improving bone mineral density and assisting in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis and bone fractures.2 Vitamin D is also synthesised in the skin through sunlight exposure however deficiency is common amongst those with inadequate sun exposure especially through colder months, are hospitalised, dark-skinned, have skin pigmentations, or covered with clothing, therefore supplementation may be required.3

What results can be expected?

Vitamin D may assist in the treatment and prevention of bone mineral disorders such as osteoporosis and bone fractures, help prevent and treat infections and improve deficiency states seen in those with rickets, hyperparathyroidism, type I and II diabetes, depression and seasonal affective disorder.4
