Vitamin D is known as the 'sunshine' vitamin as very little can be obtained from the diet, with the majority coming from the sun's UV B rays. Sunlight activates Vitamin D3 from the cholesterol located in the skin, which is then converted in the liver and processed by the kidney to help maintain Calcium balance in the body.
With increased awareness of the sun's harmful effects it has become more common for people to have low levels of Vitamin D which can lead to problems such as osteoportic fractures, bone and joint pain, falls, muscle and bone weakness or walking difficulties.
