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.

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.
