Taking Vitamin D supplements is more important than you think. Let us tell you why.
With a third of the 210,502 British patients tested being Vitamin D deficient, a study from the Health and Food Supplements Information Service (HSIS) has highlighted the need for supplement-specific solution.
Vitamin D is responsible for a healthy, functioning body. It helps regulate calcium and phosphate levels where it is essential for bone and muscle strength and development. It is also vital in supporting the immune system.
However, despite welcoming autumn and winter with our woollen hats and hot chocolates, with a proportion of Vitamin D coming from sun exposure, the shorter and darker days of these chillier months make Vitamin D difficult to detain thus leaving us vulnerable to a Vitamin D deficiency.
Achieving the daily dose of 10 micrograms required to reach the healthy serum concentration of 25(OH)D levels of 25 nmol/litre, is virtually impossible. This is due to the limited selection of Vitamin D-rich foods available and the likelihood of us ingesting enough quantities.
HSIS nutritionist Dr. Pamela Mason concludes: “supplementation would therefore appear to be the best way to achieve recommended 25(OH)D levels“. She therefore urges the UK population to take a Vitamin D supplement daily and all year round.
