Vitamin d plays a very important role in the growth and strengthening of your teeth and bones. Children especially need this important nutrient in order to mature into strong and healthy adults. As one gets older, this nutrient becomes more and more difficult for your body to manufacture through sunlight, and therefore the need for vitamin D in natural foods and supplements become more and more important.
