It is estimated that 75% of the
population is deficient in vitamin D. Recently, researchers have had a
renewed interest in vitamin D, finding it provides various benefits to
health not previously known. Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones by
stimulating the absorption of calcium in the body. Without it, the body
is unable to utilize the calcium supplied via the diet or supplements.
Recent research has found correlations between low vitamin D intake and
higher rates negative health issues.
Vitamin D is commonly referred to as the "sunshine vitamin," but many
people do not spend enough time outdoors to obtain this benefit. The
body manufactures vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight;
therefore, it is recommended that people living in northern latitudes,
not exposed to the sunlight or who use sunscreen should supplement with
the nutrient. Even though the RDA is set at 400 IU, many experts now
recommend up to 2,000 IU, especially for those at risk for deficiency
such as the elderly, dark-skinned individuals, night shift workers,
those living in the northern latitudes or that lack sun exposure, and
those who do not consume enough vitamin D-rich foods.
