Lamberts Vitamin D


 

Lamberts Vitamin D

Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.

A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can either be ingested in food or manufactured by the body as a result of sunlight falling on the skin. For this reason Lamberts also  supply vitamin D in both Lamberts Osteoguard and Lamberts Chewable Calcium tablets.

The body creates vitamin D from direct sunlight on the skin when outdoors. Of course, this means that between October and early March we don't get enough vitamin D from sunlight. 

Vitamin D is also found in a small number of foods, including oily fish – such as salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel, red meat, liver, egg yolks, fortified foods – such as most fat spreads and some breakfast cereals.

In the UK, cows' milk is generally not a good source of vitamin D because it isn't fortified, as it is in some other countries.

Another source of vitamin D is dietary supplements.

Should you take a vitamin D supplement?

Infants and young children

  • breastfed babies from birth to 1 year of age should be given a daily supplement containing 8.5 to 10 micrograms of vitamin D to make sure they get enough
  • formula-fed babies shouldn't be given a vitamin D supplement until they're having less than 500ml (about a pint) of infant formula a day, as infant formula is fortified with vitamin D
  • children aged 1 to 4 years old should be given a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D

Advice for adults and children over 5 years old

During the autumn and winter, you need to get vitamin D from your diet because the sun isn't strong enough for the body to make vitamin D.

But since it's difficult for people to get enough vitamin D from food alone, everyone (including pregnant and breastfeeding women) should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D during the autumn and winter.

People at risk of vitamin D deficiency

Some people won't get enough vitamin D from sunlight because they have very little or no sunshine exposure. People with darker skins have better protection against harmful rays from the sun but this also reduces how much vitamin D can be absorbed through sunlight.

The Department of Health recommends that you take a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year if you:

  • aren't often outdoors – for example, if you're frail or housebound
  • are in an institution like a care home
  • usually wear clothes that cover up most of your skin when outdoors
  • People with dark skin from African, African-Caribbean and south Asian backgrounds may also not get enough vitamin D from sunlight.

They should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year.

Although you will gain vitamin D from sun exposure, always remember to cover up or protect your skin if you're out in the sun for long periods to reduce the risk of skin damage and skin cancer.
