Vitamin D Deficiency | Why is Vitamin D important?
Vitamin D and NHS Advice
Lately, Public Health England updated its advice on Vitamin D. According to NHS guidelines, everyone should now consider taking 10 micrograms of Vitamin D to keep your bones and muscles healthy, all year round.
Ordinarily, the NHS recommends you consider a daily 10 micrograms supplement during the autumn and winter months. People spend less time outside due to social distancing, which reduces the creation of Vitamin D from sunlight.
Why is Vitamin D good for you?
Vitamin D regulates calcium and phosphate levels in the body. These nutrients are required for the maintenance of bones, teeth and muscle health. Most crucially, Vitamin D works to support the normal function of the immune system and inflammation response. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults. Therefore, a Vitamin D supplement may prove beneficial to many.
Why do our current lifestyles mean we are less likely to get enough Vitamin D?
Unlike other nutrients such as Vitamins C and Calcium, there are fewer good sources of Vitamin D. Typically, humans generate a sufficient amount of Vitamin D from sunlight. Ultraviolet Light (UV) causes a chemical reaction in the skin, generating Vitamin D in the body. Additionally, people must remain cautious around UV light due to the harmful effects of overexposure. As increasing numbers have adopted indoor lifestyles and sensible sun-protection habits depriving the skin of UV light, in turn, rates of vitamin D deficiency have increased.
