Vitamin D is one of the most important micronutrients in the human body. It’s also one of the least absorbent ones, leaving the majority of the population deficient. Proper supplementation and smart sun exposure are key to bringing our numbers to satisfying levels. But, what’s the best way to go about it and why? Here’s what we know. 

What is Vitamin D? 

Is it a vitamin, a hormone, or a combination of both? Officially, vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s prevalent in ultra-violet (UV) rays and our bodies mostly get it from sun exposure. It also exists in certain foods (naturally and added artificially through fortification) as well as dietary supplements. However, some experts like to refer to vitamin D as a hormone or a pre-hormone that stimulates the absorption of calcium by turning specific genes on and off.

The food we eat today isn’t as nutritionally valuable as it was 50, or even 20 years ago. The soil is depleted of many vitamins and minerals and as a consequence, so is our food. 

This is where the supplement industry comes in, offering short-term and long-term solutions in pill and powder form so that they’re easy to take and become a part of your daily routine. And even though it’s always best to do a thorough analysis and find out what micronutrients you’re actually missing out on, there are some general supplement recommendations everyone should benefit from taking.
