 Vitamin D, the sunshine hormone, is very essential for women’s health. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that is synthesized endogenously when UV rays from the sunlight fall on the skin. The main role of vitamin D is to enable the absorption of calcium in the gut to maintain normal blood calcium and phosphate levels to promote normal growth and mineralization of bone. It is a well-known fact that vitamin D prevents rickets in children, osteomalacia in adults and protects older individuals from osteoporosis. However, recent studies have shown that besides having a skeletal role, vitamin D also plays an important role in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system, active immune system and cancer prevention [1,2].
