Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. It can affect as many as 2,000 genes in your body.

Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. Besides getting vitamin D through sunlight, you can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.

For those concern about being deficient in vitamin D, below is a good article on the symptoms and health risk of Vitamin D deficiency.

It is also occurs naturally in a few foods, including some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks -- and in fortified dairy and grain products."
