|Vitamin D3 Information|
Vitamin D is a precursor hormone the building block of a powerful steroid hormone in your body called calcitriol. As a hormone, calcitriol controls phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function in the body. For centuries Vitamin D was considered to be only essential to maintaining bone health, but recently more and more studies are linking Vitamin D to overall body wellness.
Vitamin D is naturally produced by the human body when exposed to direct sunlight. Season, geographic latitude, time of day, cloud cover, smog, and sunscreen affect UV ray exposure and vitamin D synthesis in the skin, and it is important for individuals with limited sun exposure to include good sources of vitamin D in their diet.
