Also called the sun vitamin, the fat-solublevitamin D is the only vitamin that can be produced in the body itself, but only with the help of sunlight. That's why a vitamin Ddeficiency can also be one of the reasons why you feel listless and listless in the wintertime. This is because the few hours of daylight are sometimes not enough for the body to synthesize enough vitamin D. In this case, you should think about a vitamin D supplement. Then one should think of a plus of vitamin D, because it takes over numerous functions in the metabolism for the physical well-being. Especially since one should keep in mind that 80 to 90 percent of the vitamin D requirement occurs through sunlight exposure, also called endogenous synthesis.
Sunlight is therefore crucial for the absorption of vitamin D. By the way, just 10 minutes is enough for the body to replenish its depots.
The remaining 10 to 20 percent of the vitamin D requirement, on the other hand, is formed through diet.
A distinction is made between vitamin D3, which is mostly found in animal foods, and D2, which is more likely to be found in plant foods, the latter being better absorbed by the body. For a better absorption, you should also add fat to your diet, because vitamin D is fat-soluble.
