Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate. In humans, the most important related compounds of vitamin D are vitamin D2 and vitamin D3.

Vitamin D deficiency is fast becoming a global and national health concern. It is estimated that around 80% of the Indian population has Vitamin D levels less than normal. However, the bigger concern is that the population at large is not even aware of Vitamin D deficiency and its consequences.

Vitamin D is essential for the proper absorption of calcium, bone development, control of cell growth, neuromuscular functioning, proper immune functioning, and alleviation of inflammation. A deficiency can lead to rickets (a disease in which bones fail to properly develop) and in extreme cases even contribute to a weakened immune system, increased cancer risk, poor hair growth, and osteomalacia (a condition of weakened muscles and bones).
