What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is one of many vitamins your body needs to stay healthy. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance of calcium in your blood and bones and in building and maintaining bones.
More specifically, you need vitamin D so that your body can use calcium and phosphorus to build bones and support healthy tissues.
Ultimately a Vitamin D deficiency can lead to Osteomalacia and osteoporosis.
Anyone can have vitamin D deficiency, including infants, children and adults. Vitamin D deficiency is a common global issue and affects about 1 billion people worldwide, while 50% of the population has vitamin D insufficiency!
How to get sufficient Vitamin D levels:
- Sun exposure on your skin - which obviously in the Winter is hard
- Through the food you eat.
- Through nutritional supplements.
- Through Vitamin D injections - which we provide at our Medway clinics
