Vitamin D

Helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.

Vitamin D (calciferol) is a fat-soluble vitamin so critical to human health that our skin manufactures it in response to sun exposure. Its role in bone health is well-documented but vitamin D receptors are also present and active in a variety of tissues outside of bones, such as in heart muscle cells and arterial muscle cells. This would suggest that vitamin D plays a significant role in proper cardiovascular function and blood pressure. In addition, it appears that vitamin D improves immune function by increasing the production of anti-microbial proteins that provide a natural defense against disease-causing bacteria and viruses.

About Vitamin D

Deficiency is Common

Vitamin D deficiency is more common than one would think. Food sources---liver, fatty fish and fortified liquid milk products---are no longer consumed in the quantities they once were. Also our ability to synthesize vitamin D in our skin from UVB rays is reduced by sunscreen products, air pollution, medications, darker skin pigmentation, older age and a poor state of health. Population studies have suggested that societies with low blood levels of vitamin D have a higher incidence of multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, breast and colorectal cancers. In addition, vitamin D deficiency leads to softening of the bones (rickets) in children and osteomalacia in adults.

Common conditions that increase one’s vitamin D requirements:

  • Living in a cold climate
  • Dark pigmented skin
  • Frequent infections
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Vegan diet
  • Osteopenia and osteoporosis
  • History of breast or colorectal cancer

Dosage Guidelines

Health Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society both recommend 1,000 i.u. of vitamin D daily. However, this recommendation is currently under review, since many health practitioners already recommend higher daily amounts during fall, winter and spring.
