Vitamin D & Sunshine

Hope you are enjoying the outdoors this summer and getting some Vitamin D!


Our bodies make Vitamin D (actually a Hormone not a vitamin) naturally from sunlight exposure to our skin – specifically, from ultraviolet B exposure to the skin.

- which stimulates production cholecalciferol

- Then it's converted to calcidiol in Liver

- The kidneys next convert this into Calcitriol (active form of Vitamin D in body)

- In the summer extra cholecalciferol and calcidiol is stored in our fat for use in the winter. ▫️Vitamin D helps regular Calcium & Phosphorus levels in the blood. Affecting how much calcium we absorb from food & excrete through the kidneys.

Aren't our bodies amazing!
