What is Vitamin D?

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.

There is increasing evidence for the beneficial effects from dietary Vitamin D which has shown benefits for its contribution to:

  • Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
  • Normal absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
  • Normal muscle function
  • Normal blood calcium levels
  • Normal function of the immune system
  • The process of cell division

 

Vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin

While our bodies manufacture Vitamin D on exposure to sunshine, the levels in many countries is so weak during the winter months that our body makes little or no Vitamin D at all, meaning that dietary supplements are often the best way to safeguard intakes of Vitamin D. Many populations, including the majority of those in Europe, require an additional dietary source of Vitamin D to achieve and maintain an adequate status of Vitamin D throughout the year.

In addition, the body does not generate Vitamin D when sitting behind a glass window, whether in your car or at home, because these UV rays cannot penetrate glass to generate Vitamin D in the skin. Sunscreens, even weak ones, while essential to protect the skin, can affect the body’s ability to generate vital Vitamin D.

Vitamin D in the diet and health benefits

Vitamin D is naturally present in some foods (e.g. oily fish such as herring, sardines, fish liver oils, eggs, butter) and in a few foods that are fortified with Vitamin D (e.g. .margarine, some cereals, some yoghurts). Vitamin D is fat soluble, therefore advice to eat lower fat diets may contribute to reduced intakes from foods and hence dietary supplementation may be needed. In the UK the background diet provides 3-4 ug /day of Vitamin D and only a little more if oily fish is consumed.

There are a number of reasons why Vitamin D supplementation is now advocated. These include:

  • 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.

    (verified owner):

    I purchased these for my daughter so I cannot report whether they are working or not but they are considerably more potent than the vitamin D3 she was using from a well known health shop who actually hide how many IUs their vitamin D contained.

    After some research I decided to purchase these from Eureka as they had sent a sample to a friend of mine who was very happy with them.
