Vitamin D is known as the 'sunshine' vitamin as very little can be obtained from the diet, with the majority coming from the sun's UV B rays. Sunlight activates Vitamin D3 from the cholesterol located in the skin, which is then converted in the liver and processed by the kidney to help maintain Calcium balance in the body.
