Vitamin D

Vitamin D is unusual in that it can be produced in the skin from the ultraviolet rays of the sun as well as obtained from the diet. Dietetic souces include fortified milk and dairy products, liver and fatty fish. This vitamin is used to combat rickets, a childhood disease characterized by defective mineralization of the bones.
