VITAMIN D


THE BREAKDOWN
  • Absorbs Calcium and Phosphorus which progresses the growth of bones and teeth
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Hormone regulation
  • Enables cell growth


IN THE BODY
Without a proper amount of fat, Vitamin D cannot be absorbed. Human skin is also a natural producer of Vitamin D.


WITHDRAWALS
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.


NATURAL FORMS
Fish high in oil, eggs, liver and dairy products contain high natural amounts of Vitamin D.


DAILY DOSE
  • Men 200 IU, Over 50 400 IU
  • Women 200 IU, Over 50 400 IU
  • During pregnancy 200 IU
  • During breastfeeding 200 IU

OVER DOSAGE
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.


FIGHTING AGENTS
The intake of Vitamin D can be depleted by too much alcohol, cholestyramine and anticonvulsants.


SUPPLEMENTS
Treating osteoporosis and osteoarthritis in people over 65 can be achieved with Vitamin D supplements.
