Vitamin D

The Calcium Controller

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps control the calcium and phosphorus levels in our bodies. During the warmer months, we get most of our vitamin D from sunlight. However, during the cold months our vitamin D levels can become deficient. Specific foods, such as oily fish, egg yolks and red meat provide vitamin D.

The Science Bit

Vitamin D aids the absorption of calcium in the gut. It also maintains the necessary serum calcium and phosphate levels we need to keep our bones healthy. It also aids cell growth, reduces inflammation and maintains neuromuscular and immune function.

In a recent clinical study at The University of Surrey, a group of students were tested for Vitamin D deficiency at the end of the summer. They discovered that even at a time when the sun would be expected to generate high levels of vitamin D in the skin, half the study group were significantly deficient, because darker skins block the formation of Vitamin D.
