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 â€“ 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. â–«ï¸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!
