Fact you must know About Vitamin ‘D’

Vitamin D does not get enough attention, which may explain why a massive 50 – 90% of us are thought to have a deficiency. Vitamin D is acquired through contact with sunlight, consuming vitamin rich foods such as eggs, mushrooms and fish, and supplements to aid our bodies to regulate calcium absorption.

Vitamin D is also thought to be involved in our immune systems and to play roles in multiple types of diseases.

Babies require 400IU of vitamin D, adults 600IU whilst those aged over 50 and pregnant women need a massive 800IU. The ideal way for us to take in Vitamin D would be 90% through sunlight and 10% through food, or an equal 30% to food, sunlight and supplements. However, we actually gain the vitamin via sunlight just 10% of the time, 20% through food, and 20% via supplements, leaving 40% of insufficiency. This insufficiency can lead to headaches, pain, muscle weakness and can ultimately lead to very serious health issues.

Vitamin D is important! Why not get out in the sun and/ or eat some vitamin D rich foods today, and feel healthier!

Vitamin D More Than Just A Vitamin
