Why is Vitamin D So Important?
Vitamin D is needed for the body to absorb calcium which is used in bones and blood clotting. When Vitamin D is in short supply, less calcium is absorbed from food so our body saps the calcium from our bones to support blood clotting making bones brittle. Those at risk of osteoporosis need Vitamin D to increase calcium absorption to strengthen bones.
This vitamin is also essential for a healthy immune response. T cells, a group of immune cells, are critical for immune defence. They attack foreign bacteria and viruses but need vitamin D to work. Studies have also shown it can reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections.
Why do you need a Vitamin D supplement?
Governments around the world including the UK recommend that everyone should take a vitamin D supplement of at least 10 micrograms a day. A deficiency in this vitamin is incredibly common, with some studies estimating that 50% of the population is vitamin D-deficient.
Vitamin D is a hormone that our bodies manufacture when sunshine hits our bodies which is why it is known as the sunshine vitamin.
Between October and March the levels of sunlight in the UK aren’t sufficient for us to make vitamin D. Long days spent indoors and in the office have led to widespread vitamin D deficiency across the UK. Even if you spend enough time outdoors, cloud cover, air pollution, and suntans all affect the amount of sunshine available to the body which means a supplement is recommended.
Vitamin D3: controls calcium absorption which affects bone development, it is vital for making our muscles work efficiently and it is believed to play a role in joint and bone pain and is also essential for blood clotting.
Numerous studies indicate the link between healthy vitamin D levels and a strong immune system. A group of immune cells, the T-cells, are critical for immune defence and are dependent on adequate levels of vitamin D in the blood. When a T-cell is exposed to a foreign bacteria or virus if vitamin D is not present it will remain dormant and unable to attack the infection. A number of studies have observed that vitamin D could reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections.
Vitamin D receptors exist in the brain. Studies have shown that vitamin D increases serotonin levels in the brain, improving mood and a sense of well being and noted that those with low vitamin D levels were at a higher risk of developing depression.
It is also important for boosting energy levels and for healthy skin and helps against ageing. People suffering from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis have benefited from vitamin D supplementation.
Clinical trials surmised vitamin D supplements can be particularly beneficial to older women.
