Background: Vitamin D is an important factor for bone growth. Vitamin D deficiency reduces absorption of calcium and causes rickets and also increases bone fragility. In addition, Vitamin D deficiency has exoskeleton side effects, such as increased risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, infections and autoimmune diseases. In most cases, vitamin D intake is not enough  in dietary food supplies.
