What does vitamin D3 do?
Vitamin D3 plays an important role in supporting a healthy, balanced immune system. Low vitamin D levels, which are common amongst the UK population, particularly during winter, may compromise our immune response and leave us at risk of infection. Because it helps to balance the immune system, it’s important for those with over-active immune systems too. It is also needed for bone health – without it, our bodies cannot absorb calcium which is critical for strong bones – and for muscle function. This is important in older people who may be more at risk of falling, a risk factor for fractures. It is also very important for the normal growth and development of bones in children.
Who is at risk of vitamin D deficiency?
Between October and March, everyone in the UK is at risk of low levels of vitamin D, as we can’t generate enough vitamin D in the skin through sunlight in those months, and it’s very difficult to consume enough through food. It is thought that as little as 10% of our vitamin D intake comes from the food we eat. Supplementation with 400iu (10mcg) is recommended for adults and children over the age of one, particularly during the autumn and winter months; and groups at risk of deficiency such as those who have little or no exposure to sun, are recommended to supplement all year round.
