What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, that helps your body absorb calcium, magnesium, and phosphate.
A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone diseases such as osteoporosis or rickets. It also has a role in your nerve, muscle, and immune system.
You can get vitamin D in three ways:
- Through your skin (from sun exposure)
- From your diet
- From supplements
Vitamin D rich foods include:
- Egg yolks
- Fatty fish
- Milk and cereal (often have added vitamin D)
