Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus into the body, the minerals with the highest spread in the body. Calcium and phosphorus are the main actors in the development and maintenance of the strong and healthy bone system.
Strong bone system
Calcium is the mineral with the largest amount in the body and almost everything is distributed in the bone structure, skeleton and teeth. Phosphorus is the second most widespread mineral in the body and also plays an important role in maintaining the health of the bone system. To get enough calcium and phosphorus, the body needs vitamin D.
This allows the absorption of the two minerals in the gut and their transport to the areas of the body where they are needed. Optimal intake is extremely important for the healthy development of children, whose bone system is growing and may be more fragile than that of adults.
Sources of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is found in the body in two main forms: ergocalciferol or Vitamin D2 and cholecarciferol or Vitamin D3. Recent studies by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council of the United Kingdom claim that vitamin D3 is better for the body than vitamin D2. According to them, vitamin D3 is more easily processed by the body and has more health benefits.
Vitamin D3 is obtained mainly through a synthesis process in the skin, in the presence of the sun. The precursor of vitamin D, 7-dehydrocholesterol, is transformed in the presence of ultraviolet B (UVB) rays into cholecalciferous or vitamin D3. For this process, however, it is necessary that the UV index be higher than 3. Because this value is recorded especially in spring and summer, it is possible that in the cold season the amount of vitamin D3 in the body may be insufficient. Also, people with darker skin tones synthesize more vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 can also be obtained from foods such as fish, mushrooms, beef liver, cheese or egg yolk. Also, a good source of vitamin D3 are food supplements with optimal concentrations.
