Vitamin D

Vitamin D3 (choelaciferol) is known as the sunshine vitamin, because your body manufactures it from exposure to sunlight. Naturally occurring dietary sources are beef, liver, and egg yolks, while dairy products and orange juice are often fortified with Vitamin D.

Vitamin D3 works with calcium and magnesium to keep your bones in good health. It also works to improve muscle tone, preventing the falls which can lead to fractures.
