Have you ever heard of the “sunshine vitamin”? Yes, it’s Vitamin D! It’s called such because vitamin D is produced in the skin when exposed to sunlight or consumed in foods or supplements provided by a vitamin manufacturer or supplement manufacturer. This fat-soluble vitamin includes vitamins D1, D2 and D3. Even though it’s called a “vitamin”, Vitamin D is actually considered a pro-hormone and not really a “vitamin” because the body can produce its own vitamin D through the reaction of the skin to sunlight while vitamins are nutrients that cannot be produce or synthesized by the body and therefore must be acquired through diet and supplements.
