Vitamin D is fat-soluble and plays a myriad of important roles in the body. It’s best known for its role in calcium metabolism and bone health density. If you are looking for a ‘comprehensive’ anti-osteoporosis formula, you should include calcium, magnesium, vitamin K2 (as menaquinone), zinc, selenium, and silicon (silica).
Research shows that almost 75% of the world’s population is deficient in vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 is vital for the immune system, affecting approximately 300 genes, (some of which regulate cancer cell growth and differentiation), and is involved in blood pressure regulation. Deficient vitamin D3 levels have been linked to practically every age-related disorder in the body, including chronic inflammation, vascular disease, cognitive dysfunction and dementia, and various cancers, including breast, cervical, colon, endometrial, oesophagal, gastric, skin, and lung cancer.
Vitamin D3 is also necessary for proper thyroid function and appropriate blood clotting.
Vitamin D3 is essential to overall health. Vitamin D receptors are found throughout the body, especially in the brain. Receptors are also located in the bones, pancreas, intestines, thymus, spinal cord, kidneys, reproductive organs, adrenal glands, thyroid glands, and pituitary gland. This statement alone reinforces the fact that this vitamin is vital to overall health.
Vitamin D is available in some foods but most of it is delivered by way of direct sunlight (UV rays). Vitamin D deficiency is a global health problem and nearly one billion people worldwide are vitamin D deficient or insufficient. This includes those living in warmer climates. With age, the body manufactures less vitamin D3 from the sun, which is why supplementation is so important.

Vitamin D is fat-soluble, therefore stored in the body, and can become toxic for some people. However, at the same time, some people need much higher doses. It is therefore advisable to consult with your doctor or healthcare practitioner and to do periodic blood testing to check your levels. For bone health, it is advisable to take magnesium with vitamin D3.
