Vitamin D has multiple functions in the body, the most important are related to the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus and muscle function, ensuring, among other functions, bone mineralization and muscle recovery.
Thus, a lack of vitamin D increases the susceptibility to a more fragile bone structure. Vitamin D deficiency is perceived as pandemic and multifactorial.

Until a few years ago vitamin D was only associated with bone health and calcium metabolism, nowadays it is associated with the importance of training efficiency, modelling inflammation, improving immune and muscle function.
For athletes who train in environments with little or no sun exposure and food low in this vitamin, supplementation becomes even more important to counter this deficiency.
Daily recommendations for vitamin D are 600IU for children and adults (1-70 years) and 800 IU for ages over 70.
Rocksprint's VITA D3 has 100 µg (2000% Nutrient Reference Value) of Vitamin D3 per serving (1 capsule). Rocksprint's VITA D3 has the following main benefits:
