Vitamins like C and E continue to be the darlings of many supplement lovers. But those vitamin superstars are being forced to share their throne with the long-neglected vitamin D, which is finally getting the attention it may have always deserved.

Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium. Vitamin D, in tandem with calcium, helps build bones and keep bones strong and healthy. It also blocks the release of a specific hormone called "parathyroid hormone" which reabsorbs bone tissue, which makes bones thin and brittle.

Moreover, Vitamin D plays a role in muscle function and the immune system. The immune system is your body’s defense system. It helps protect it against infections and other illnesses. Daily vitamin D supplementation has been shown to decrease the risk of falling in older individuals.

In this episode of Press Plus, we are going to learn more about Vitamin D and its vital role in our health.
