Our bodies obtain vitamin D (strictly speaking a steroid hormone) from two sources: our diet and the action of sunlight on our skin, which drives natural production within the body. While ample sun exposure would provide sufficient vitamin D, in reality, we need to obtain some from our diet, especially during the winter months and in the elderly, as the body’s ability to manufacture vitamin D declines with age. Up to 60% of the UK population is vitamin D deficient, and low levels have been linked to serious health problems in later life.
This is not surprising considering its involvement in the expression of more than 1000 genes. While renowned for its vital role in maintaining normal bone health, it actually acts on cells in every organ of the body, with extremely far-reaching effects on human health.
