Tit bits about vitamin D

Vitamin D is a chemical which has only popped onto the radar, as a master switch in the last few years.  It is really a hormone in disguise.  Most hormones are manufactured by the body, vitamin D is made in the skin in response to exposure to sun, but it can also be consumed through diet (or supplements), making it a vitamin as well.  Initially, vitamin D was seen as being important for bones but scientists have found it has the ability to switch on multiple genes, including genes involved in controlling immunity as well as metabolism.  Most people don’t spend enough time outdoors so  “Increasing Vit D” through “sun tanning” or supplements, is likely to have health benefits.
