What does Vitamin D do?
Our bodies naturally create Vitamin D by converting cholesterol into Vitamin D when our skin is exposed to the sun. We can also receive small amounts of vitamin D through consuming foods like:
- Egg yolks
- Fortified foods, such as some breads and cereals
- Oily fish, such as salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel
- Red meat
Vitamin D is important for maintaining both our physical and mental health. Its main use is to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, as well as helping our body to absorb calcium which keeps our bones, teeth and muscles healthy and strong.
What is the difference between Vitamin D and Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D is an umbrella term, there are different types of vitamin D with the two main types being vitamin D2 and D3. Vitamin D3 is the biologically active form of the vitamin, which our body creates when the skin is exposed to sunlight. D2 is created by plants when they are exposed to the sun’s rays. As our bodies absorb and use vitamin D3 better, it is recommended that you choose a vitamin supplement that contains either solely vitamin D3 or an optimum level of both D2 and D3.
How can HuxD3 help to increase Vitamin D levels?
