Nutrition & Vitamin D:
One of the most important roles of vitamin D is to maintain healthy bones by promoting calcium absorption, promoting bone resorption, maintaining calcium and phosphate levels for bone formation, and allowing proper functioning of parathyroid hormone to maintain serum calcium levels. Vitamin D deficiency can result in lower bone mineral density and an increased risk of reduced bone density (osteoporosis) or bone fracture because a lack of vitamin D alters mineral metabolism in the body. Sources include; milk, mushrooms, fish oils, sunshine etc. Check nutrition section guide for more.
