The sunshine vitamin
Vitamin D is also called “the sunshine vitamin” because it is mainly produced by the body in response to skin being exposed to sunlight. Only few foods are naturally rich in vitamin D. If you live north of the line connecting San Francisco to Philadelphia, odds are that your body doesn’t manufacture enough vitamin D. The same holds true if you don’t exposure your skin for at least a 15-minute to sunlight. African-Americans and others with darker skin tone, as well as older individuals, tend to have much lower levels of vitamin D, as do people who are overweight or obese.
Vitamin D and health
There is no doubt that vitamin D is an important nutrient for overall well-being. This is also reflected in the fact that nearly every tissue and cell type in the body has receptors for vitamin D. Vitamin D ensures, for example, that the intestines can absorb calcium and phosphorus from food. It supports the functionality of bones, teeth and muscles and promotes cardiovascular and immune health. Accordingly, a sufficient and stable vitamin D balance has a major influence on human well-being.*
