More About Vitamin D Formulas
Soaking up the sun is a great way to get vitamin D, but chances are you can't make time every day to bask in the rays. Working inside, uncooperative local climates, and sunscreen use mean that few people get the necessary amount of this essential vitamin from the sun. If you spend a lot of time indoors or don't eat the foods that contain it — true for many vegans and the lactose intolerant — then getting the proper dose of vitamin D is difficult. Supplements are an easy and effective alternative way to boost your vitamin D levels for optimal health and wellbeing.
Vitamin D does a lot of work in the body, from promoting bone growth to reducing inflammation and modulating cell growth. It's also essential in helping the body properly absorb calcium, which plays a huge role in bone health. Vitamin D deficiencies often manifest when a person develops rickets or osteomalacia, the softening and weakening of the bones. Exclusively breastfed infants may need vitamin D supplements — always get your pediatrician's OK — whereas most baby formulas come fortified with vitamin D.
