"The most important role of vitamin D3 is maintaining blood calcium levels. It is therefore necessary for healthy bones and teeth and this supplement is commonly used by those suffering from osteoporosis. Recent research has implicated that vitamin D may reduce the risk of certain cancers including breast, prostate and colon.
Vitamin D3 is made in the skin in the presence of sunlight so exposure to daylight plays a role in addition to diet and supplementation."
