Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin also known as Cholecalciferol. It is often referred to as the ‘sunshine vitamin’ since it can be made in the body by the action of sunlight on the skin. For this reason, it is also considered as a hormone. Dietary sources include oily fish, milk, and dairy products. In terms of Recommended Daily Amounts (RDA), in July 2016 Public Health England published guidelines for vitamin D and the recommendations are as follows; Babies from birth to 1 year: 8.5-10µg all year round. Children over 1 year and adults: 10 µg in the winter months. Pregnant and breastfeeding women and population groups at risk of vitamin D deficiency (those with minimal exposure to sunshine and those from minority ethnic groups with dark skin): 10 µg /day all year round.

Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption/ utilisation of calcium levels and phosphorus contributes to normal blood calcium levels and contributes to the maintenance of normal bones. These three factors in combination make vitamin D one of the most important nutrients for maintaining the correct structure and function of bone. It is thought to help increase the uptake of calcium from food and reduce calcium loss in the urine. A deficiency could, therefore, interfere with processes and inhibit the formation of normal bone.
Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth. This is because vitamin D is required for efficient calcium absorption and the normal mineralisation of bones and teeth. A deficiency may lead to poor health of the teeth, especially when they are forming and growing in children.
Vitamin D contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system. It plays a key role in both the innate and adaptive immune system by regulating important immune cells needed for reducing the inflammation response and suppressing antigens which may be harmful to health.
