What is Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 is fondly referred to as the ‘sunshine vitamin’ because it is commonly sourced from the sun’s rays. Although this essential nutrient is vital for many different functions in the body, it is most popularly taken to maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps to promote a healthy immune system and normal muscle function.
Should I Take Vitamin D3?
As the skin ages, it becomes less efficient at converting rays from the sun into vitamin D and a gradual loss of bone density can occur, leaving bones more vulnerable to breaks and fractures.
Mature women, in particular, are at increased risk of bone loss due to decreased oestrogen levels after menopause. Higher intakes of vitamin D have also been shown to reduce the risk of falling associated with unstable posture and weakened muscles. This is a serious risk factor for bone fractures among men and women of sixty years of age and older.
