It is estimated that over 50% of the global population is at risk from vitamin D deficiency with people living in countries with limited daily exposure to sunshine such as the UK at greater risk.*
Once thought only to benefit bone health, there is now a growing body of evidence to suggest that vitamin D plays a huge role in the overall health of the body. It has even been suggested that vitamin D should be reclassified as a hormone. This is why one of the most important things you can do for your health is to learn about the benefits of proper sunlight exposure and vitamin D supplementation.
"We estimate that vitamin D deficiency is the most common medical
condition in the world."
- Dr. Michael F. Holick, vitamin D expert
Government guidelines state that all children under 5yrs of age, pregnant and breastfeeding women and the over 65’s should be taking vitamin D supplements. In February 2012 Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England announced that she will be contacting medical staff about government concerns that young children and some adults are not getting enough vitamin D.
Am I vitamin D deficient?
The best way to discover vitamin D deficiency is to take a blood test that will measure the level of the vitamin in your blood. You can ask your doctor to do this for you. The only way to know for sure if a certain dosage is working for you is to have your vitamin D levels tested. Occasional monitoring of these levels will help one determine what dose is right for you. The amount needed to raise and/or maintain blood serum levels for one person may not be enough for another. This is due to variable factors such as age, weight, absorption, overall health, and amount of sun exposure.
