Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium – one of the building blocks of healthy bones. Without it, bone disease can occur. Are you at risk of the condition?
There are three ways to get the vitamin D you need, explained MedlinePlus – through your skin, from your diet, and from supplements.
Adults up to 70 years of age are recommended to have 600IU (international units) of vitamin D everyday; this increases to 800IU for people aged 71 and beyond.
Certain individuals are at a higher risk of a vitamin D deficiency, including those aged 71 and over.
