Vitamin D is a fat soluble nutrient which supports your body in many ways. Perhaps the most well-known role for Vitamin D, is the one it plays in supporting the proper absorption and utilisation of calcium, and therefore, the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Additionally, Vitamin D helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a major risk factor for bone fractures among men and women over the age of 60. On top of all this, Vitamin D also helps to support normal muscle function and contributes to a healthy immune system.
