VITAMIN D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D formation. Its main biological function is to help the body utilise calcium which is necessary for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth.
Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function and the immune system. Coconut oil aids rapid absorption of the fat-soluble vitamin D. Coconut oil breaks down quickly in the body to provide rapid energy.
