The main function of vitamin D is to help the body absorb calcium and phosphorus in the small intestine. Calcium is needed to support bone mineralization (hardening of bones), cell functions, and proper nerve and muscle function.
People who have a vitamin D deficiency may develop soft, weakened, and brittle bones, a condition known as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D is promoted by mainstream clinicians for its role in balancing calcium and phosphorus and for bone health.
