Vitamin D Supplements: Understanding the Sources & Benefits of Vitamin D

While there are several benefits of vitamin D, one benefit is supporting the absorption of calcium and phosphorous in the body. While you may receive adequate amounts of these nutrients through a healthy diet, vitamin D is important because it supports your body’s ability to absorb them. It also works with calcium to  help maintain healthy bones and teeth. Other vitamin D benefits may include support of the immune system and helping to maintain cardiovascular health.*
