Every moment you turn around, a new news item highlighting the significance of vitamin D appears.
The need of getting enough sun exposure for good health is being increasingly demonstrated by studies, which makes vitamin D deficiency a severe problem. One explanation is that the sun gives us vitamin D, a necessary nutrient that has numerous health benefits for the body.
What precisely does vitamin D do? According to research, this purported “sunshine vitamin” affects not only the health of your bones and skeleton but also your immune system, blood pressure, mood, and brain function.
The reason it’s commonly referred to as the “sunshine vitamin” is that our skin produces it when exposed to sunlight.
How about the summers? You can’t always expose your skin directly. Now how about vitamin D synthesis?
Let’s examine the mechanism in detail!
Why Vitamin A?
Most vegetarians are deficient in Vitamin A. Carrots do not have Vitamin A but they have something called beta carotene that is converted only 9 % to 33% in the body.
Since Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, it has a cumulative effect in the body if you are obese. In the presence of Vitamin A, Vitamin D toxicity is rare. Also vitamin A works with vitamin D to support your immune system. (AmJClinNutr 2012; 96(5):1166S-72S)

But, Vitamin D occurs in very few food sources. Therefore, supplementing with vitamin D is the key to meet your needs and prevent deficiency.
Q2: How long should I take Vitamin ADK tablets?
