Here’s an important vitamin for those concerned with Osteoporosis, it helps with calcium absorption. You will find a lot of foods fortified with Vitamin D, but beware of Vitamin D2. It has been linked to hyperactivity, coronary heart disease and allergic reactions (Fallon, Sally. Enig, Mary G. Nourishing Traditions. (Washington, DC, New Trends, 1999) Second Edition, 39.)
You can naturally find Vitamin D in Cod-Liver oil, eggs and dairy products. A deficiency in Vitamin D can lead to rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. And to excess of the vitamin can lead too, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of weight and kidney damage. The amount needed is tiny, only 0.005mg daily.
