Ingredients & DescriptionThe most important role of fat-soluble vitamin D3 is maintaining blood levels of calcium, which it accomplishes by increasing absorption of calcium from food and reducing urinary calcium loss. Both effects keep calcium in the body and therefore spare the calcium that is stored in bones. When calcium is low, vitamin D takes calcium from the bone into the bloodstream, which does not benefit bones. Although the overall effect of vitamin D on the bones is complicated, and its importance is being re-discovered and highlighted in current studies, some vitamin D is necessary for healthy bones and teeth.
