Why is Vitamin D important?

We can get our Vitamin D from sunlight, hence why it is sometimes known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’; our body converts the sunlight we receive on our skin to Vitamin D. Unfortunately, the sun doesn’t always shine so it is important to eat foods that are rich in Vitamin D.
