Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that interacts with and regulates more than 200 genes in the body. Your body absorbs Vitamin D from exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light on exposed skin, and from plants, fortified foods and supplements.
Low levels of Vitamin D are associated with a significant increased risk for coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, stroke, diabetes mellitus, and many causes of mortality.
