Vitamins are essential for normal growth and functioning of human body. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin which increases the absorption of calcium, magnesium and other minerals in the intestine.

These minerals are required for healthy maintenance of bones, teeth and muscles.

Human body can acquire vitamin D through diet, through skin and from supplements. Sunlight exposure triggers synthesis of vitamin D in the body.

As too much exposure to sunlight can cause cancer because of ultraviolet rays, other sources of vitamin D are preferred. Infants, growing children and senior citizens need to take vitamin D supplements.

Milk, cereal, egg yolks and some fish are sources of vitamin D. Its deficiency can cause rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.
