•The Benefits of Vitamin D
Vitamin D’s major function is to support bone health by enhancing calcium and phosphorus absorption and maintaining healthy blood levels of these minerals.† In addition, Vitamin D can help to maintain a healthy immune system.† [Vitamin D may regulate and support normal functions of immune cells in the body.†]
When and How Much to Take
Since Vitamin D in the body comes from both dietary sources and sunlight exposure, an individual’s needs can vary greatly. Assuming minimal sun exposure, it is recommended to consume at least 600 IU per day for adults and 800 IU per day for people age 71 and older. Since Vitamin D is fat soluble, absorption may be increased if taking with a fat containing meal. Individuals living in northern climates or who are concerned about the risks of sun exposure should also consider taking a Vitamin D supplement.
•Food Sources for Vitamin D
Natural sources of Vitamin D are limited, and include cod liver oil, some fatty fish such as mackerel, salmon, and sardines; liver, and egg yolks. [Milk, bread, cereal and orange juice may also be fortified with Vitamin D.]
