What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in a few foods and is also produced by the body in response to sun exposure. There are two major forms of vitamin D â€“ D2 & D3. Vitamin D3 is transformed into the active form of vitamin D quicker than vitamin D2. However an organic vitamin D3 does not exist so those wanting an organic vitamin D would need the organic vitamin D2. Vitamin D3 is generally animal derived, with the exception of lichen and vitamin D2 is sourced from plants, with levels of D2 especially rich in Mushrooms.
What foods contain Vitamin D?
Very few foods contain vitamin D however eggs, milk and fatty Fish provide low levels of it.
What is Vitamin D Deficiency?
The classic vitamin D deficiency disease is rickets. Yet as fear of sun-exposure has grown and lifestyles have become more sedentary, exposure to the sun has dropped dramatically and vitamin D deficiency and the incidence of rickets has surged. Many older people and those from the Asian community who tend to wear more modest clothing are amongst the population groups most like to suffer deficiency in vitamin D
