Vitamin D promotes the body's absorption of calcium, which is essential
for the normal development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones.
It promotes bone mineralization in concert with a number of other
vitamins, minerals, and hormones. Calcium is also important to nerve cells,
including the brain. The main function of phosphorus is in the formation
of bones and teeth. It plays an important role in the body's utilization
of carbohydrates and fats and in the synthesis of protein for the
growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues. It is also crucial
for the production of ATP, a molecule the body uses to store energy.
Research suggests that vitamin D may help maintain a healthy immune
system, by assisting in the regulation of the normal function and growth
of immune cells.
The National Institutes of Health have
stated that it is important for individuals with limited sun exposure to
include good sources of vitamin D in their diets to prevent deficiency.*
