IN THE BODY
Without a proper amount of fat, Vitamin D cannot be
absorbed. Human skin is also a natural producer of Vitamin D.
Lack of Vitamin D can cause Rickets in adolescents because
the fragile bones of a child need a steady supply of calcium,
which Vitamin D provides. Muscle weakness is the most
common sign that you are not getting enough Vitamin D.
Fish high in oil, eggs, liver and dairy products contain
high natural amounts of Vitamin D.
- Men 200 IU, Over 50 400 IU

If one consumes too much Vitamin D, symptoms can include
itching, nausea and eye irritation.
An excessive amount can also cause problems with the
lungs and kidney.
The intake of Vitamin D can be depleted by too much alcohol,
cholestyramine and anticonvulsants.
Treating osteoporosis and osteoarthritis in people over 65
can be achieved with Vitamin D supplements.
