Vitamin D ensures the body’s response to the insulin that’s secreted from the pancreas. It also helps to transport glucose to the body’s cells. In the event that the body is low in vitamin D the levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) become elevated. This leads to the conversion of fat cells to sugar – the body then retains that fat instead of burning it.
