What is vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 is affectionately known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it generally comes from the sun’s rays. Although this essential nutrient is vital for many different functions in the body, it is most often taken to maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps promote a healthy immune system and normal muscle function.
Should I take vitamin D3?
As the skin ages, it becomes less efficient at converting sunlight into vitamin D, and a progressive loss of bone density can occur, leaving bones more vulnerable to breakage and fracture.
Mature women, in particular, are at increased risk of bone loss due to lower estrogen levels after menopause. Higher intakes of vitamin D have also been shown to reduce the risk of falls associated with unstable posture and weakened muscles. It is a serious risk factor for bone fractures in men and women aged sixty and over.
