Your body must have vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth. You also need vitamin D for many other important body functions.
Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to many diseases and studies show that people with higher levels of vitamin D have a lower risk of disease.
Vitamin D is such a essential nutrient that you body can make itself but only after skin exposure to sufficient sunlight. Before you think that we are in the low risk category because of the plenty of sunshine in Australia, think again - aka Slip, Slop, Slap.
