What is Vitamin D?
According to NHS Choices Vitamin D helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in foods such as oily fish, butter and egg yolk. It is formed through the action of UV sunlight on the skin. Vitamin D has functions and benefits that are probably more wide ranging than any other vitamin. There has been huge renewed interest in vitamin D recently, with new global research showing that the health benefits of this nutrient stretch beyond bone health.
Vitamin D deficiency affects at least half the population. Those most at risk include: over 65s, pregnant and breast-feeding women, people with low exposure to the sun and people who have darker skin.
People at risk of vitamin D deficiency
The UK’s Department of Health recommends that: Some people won’t get enough vitamin D from sunlight because they have very little or no sunshine exposure. The Department of Health recommends that you take a daily supplement containing 10mcg of vitamin D throughout the year if you:
aren’t often outdoors – for example, if you’re frail or housebound
are in an institution like a care home
usually wear clothes that cover up most of your skin when outdoors
People with dark skin from African, African-Caribbean and south Asian backgrounds may also not get enough vitamin D from sunlight. They should consider taking a daily supplement containing vitamin D throughout the year.Our formulation enables you to receive the goodness of Vitamin D3 throughout the whole year, come rain or shine.
There are a number of reasons why Vitamin D supplementation is now advocated including:
Government health advice to reduce sun exposure which can mean less Vitamin D is produced naturally by the body.
Reduced sun exposure in certain groups of the population e.g. older people, for religious reasons/clothing, certain occupations, medical reasons, those with dark skin (as greater skin melanin content can reduce the skin’s ability to produce Vitamin D).
Increased requirement at certain life stages e.g. the elderly population – whose skin may not be able to synthesize Vitamin D effectively.
Those with increased dietary intolerances (e.g. lactose and dairy), allergens.
People who are on a diet.
