Due to the perils of too much sunlight, concerns have been raised about a decrease in Vitamin D levels particularly in at-risk groups. Vitamin D is specifically reknowned for its ability to increase Calcium absorption thus having a positive impact on bone health. However a deficiency of Vitamin D may also impact on immune function, mood and birth weight. Alongside Calcium, Vitamin D is considered one of the pregnancy “Big 3" together with folic acid and omega 3-fatty acids.
Research on Omega 3 provides beneficial effects on bone metabolism and integrity through a variety of biochemical mechanisms while concomitantly increasing Calcium absorption, bone Calcium and bone density.
Vitamin D deficiency is more common in strict vegetarians (who avoid vitamin D-fortified dairy foods), dark-skinned people, alcoholics, and people suffering intestinal malabsorption disorders such as celiac disease).
Vitamin D supports and promotes bone health including bone density, may help to reduce the risk of hip fractures in the elderly and osteoporosis. Vitamin D improves muscle strength in the elderly and may therefore reduce the incidence of falls and risk of fracture, supports positive mood in healthy individuals during winter, maintenance of healthy circulation and general wellbeing, assists in the maintenance of healthy skin and supports a healthy birth weight in newborn infants.
