- Vitamin D is not really a vitamin because it is synthesized by the skin following exposure to sunlight. Synthesis of vitamin D depends upon a wide number of factors including the type of ultraviolet light as well as the intensity, duration of exposure, skin pigmentation, age, altitude, latitude, hour of day and time of year.Vitamin D deficiency is widespread across all population groups. Most physicians recognize that the elderly population is at risk, however it is less appreciated that children, young adults and middle age groups are also at risk of being deficient. Studies have shown that children in areas ranging from Madrid, Spain to Maine, New York were approximately 50% deficit in vitamin D in the winter months. Apart from those who live in equilateral regions, most people do not synthesize sufficient amounts of vitamin D. For instance, in Edmonton, which is 52N, vitamin D synthesis is impaired from October through to March.Vitamin D for Adults
Vitamin D plays an important role in bone health at all ages. In adults and older individuals, vitamin D deficiency results in osteomalacia (a softening of the bones) and can lead to osteopenia and osteoporosis. In adults, supplementation with 800IU of vitamin D has been linked to a 26% reduction of hip fractures and a 23% reduction in non-vertebral fractures.Muscle weakness, pain and changes in gait have also been described in vitamin D insufficiency. This may be the reason that the elderly have more falls and consequently increased fracture rates.
Vitamin D has been associated with increased hypertension, increased auto-immune diseases and various forms of unhealthy cells in the breast, prostate and skin. Low Vitamin D is associated with chronic pain, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), poor immune system, diabetes, seasonally affective disorders and even an increased risk of mortality by all causes. Studies also suggest that vitamin D has important immunological and antibacterial effects, and may be important for preventing infections and even the common cold.
