In brief: From the sun

Vitamin d is made in the skin by the action of sunlight.
It is poorly absorbed from foods. Symptoms of its deficiency are extremely variable e.g. Autism is caused in some kids. The reason is that this vitamin has effectrs on every cell in the body. It is not just because it helps to regulate calcium metabolism.
