Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be obtained through the diet or synthesized in the skin upon exposure to sunlight. The health benefits of Vitamin D—such as providing support for immune health as well as healthy bones and teeth—are already well-documented.* But what’s not as well-known is the role that Magnesium plays in activating Vitamin D.
Magnesium plays two distinct roles in activating Vitamin D. First, Magnesium is involved in converting Vitamin D from the form we get in food, supplements, and the sun into its storage form. From here, Magnesium plays a separate role in converting Vitamin D from its storage form to its active form—the form that provides all the nutrient’s essential benefits.* That’s why Vitamin D and Magnesium balance is critical for maintaining the health of your immune system.*
Both also play important roles in bone health: Vitamin D assists in calcium absorption while Magnesium is involved in calcium transport.* Magnesium is also one of the primary structural components of bone. Magnesium is found in foods such as spinach, black beans, potatoes, peanuts, brown rice, and chicken breast. Natural sources of Vitamin D are limited, though fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, and sardines, and fish liver oils are some of the best sources.
Approximately half of all Americans do not consume the estimated average requirement for Magnesium, however, and Vitamin D intakes have been reported to be sub-optimal in many Americans as well. Puritan’s Pride Vitamin D with Magnesium provides both nutrients in optimal forms to improve bioavailability, as D3 is a more bioavailable form than D2, and magnesium citrate is a more bioavailable form compared to other forms such as magnesium oxide. Daily supplementation can contribute to optimal health benefits for both nutrients.
