VITAMIN D BOOSTERS
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that increases intestinal absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphate. Vitamin D can be stored in the body for a long time. Scientists have recently discovered it plays a role in immunity, cell growth, neuromuscular immune functions, inflammation, the protection against cancers and other areas of health. In May 2020 a British review conducted by the UK Anglia Ruskin University found a link between low levels of Vitamin D and a high number of COVID- 19 cases in Europe.
We obtain Vitamin D mainly from exposure to sunlight and because it is not available in large enough quantities in food. Dietary sources include fatty fish such as salmon, heron and mackerel and mushrooms. Milk is often fortified with vitamin D as are some bread, juices and other dairy products.
