Vitamin D contributes to various functions in the human body, such as immune defence, metabolism of calcium and phosphorus, bone mineralisation. Vitamin D is produced in the skin by sunlight, therefore it is recommended to take vitamin D supplements during the winter. A Norwegian study discovered that vitamin D deficiency can cause accumulation of localised fat. Vitamin D would intervene in releasing the fat. A sufficient amount of vitamin D in the body also influences the testosterone levels positively. Various researches have shown better mood and reduced fatigue.
