Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts like a hormone as it can be produced by the body and moves through the circulation. Fat-soluble vitamins are broken down by bile and absorbed by the intestinal wall where they are carried around the bloodstream by proteins. Vitamin D is converted in the liver and kidneys to the active form of vitamin D. Vitamin D is one of the major stimulators for calcium absorption in the intestine. It helps calcium support bones by promoting healthy mineral density and bone repair.
Vitamin D is produced by the bare skin when exposed directly to sunlight. The risk factors for deficiency may include environmental conditions e.g. geographical locations, sun protection, nutrient deficiencies, inflammatory diseases, age and skin type. Try exposing your bare skin to 10mins of direct sunlight daily. Small amounts of vitamin D can be found in fatty fish e.g. salmon, tuna and sardines, beef and liver, eggs and some fortified foods. It is estimated that 31% of adults in Australians have a vitamin D deficiency (Nowson & Margeison 2002).See the research
