Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium and phosphorus and therefore plays an important role in the health of our bones. The main source of vitamin D is from exposure of our skin to sunlight. However, many Australians don’t have adequate levels of vitamin D, especially in the winter months or if they spend little time outside.
Vitamin D is important for bone health.
