Vitamin D is vital for both health of children and adults. While there occurs some health problems with lack of Vitamin D, Vitamin D actually affects all systems of our body.


Well, What Is Vitamin D?

It is a kind of vitamin called calciferol, fat-soluble, stored in liver and adipose tissue. It has two types: D2 and D3. Vitamin D taken from sun and nutrition is transformed into more effective chemical by change in liver and kidney. Unlike other vitamins, Vitamin D is not exorcised from body but stored. Because of storage, deficiency and superfluity in the body really matters. Vitamin D plays role for absorbation and bone storage of calcium with phosphorus. At the same time it controls calcium level of blood directly and level of phosphorus indirectly. We need Vitamin D for absorbation of calcium taken from nutrition and for muscles to work.
