Referred to as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D is synthesized in the body when it is exposed to the sun (ultraviolet light) or in the consumption of some specific foods. Most of the people are deficient in Vitamin D because their sun exposure is insufficient or inadequate due to weather condition as well as the winter season. It is very difficult to get the required amount of vitamin D only by the diet.
Recently, Vitamin D has become one of the hottest vitamins in the health and fitness community for improving athletic performance and strength. Not only will Vitamin D helps our bodies to absorb and use calcium and phosphorous for strong bones and teeth but also helps protect against infections by keeping a healthy immune system.
Vitamin D is somehow energizing. It will therefore promote a better mood while reducing the risk of depression.
