Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, meaning it dissolves in fat and can be stored in the body’s fatty tissues.  Again In Medical Aesthetics it is administered for wellbeing and not health and again it is vital to have a consultation with a Medical Aesthetics Practitioner.

Vitamin D plays a vital role in many bodily functions.  It is a unique vitamin in the way it can be produced by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight, with this in mind it’s easy to see why the people of the UK often suffer from Vitamin D deficiencies.  Deficiencies are also more prevalent in people of darker skin tones.

It is also found in foods such as; fatty fish, egg yolks and fortified dairy products.

Vitamin D is important for bone health as it helps the body absorb calcium and maintain strong bones.  It also plays a role in immune function, cell growth and inflammation regulation.
