Vitamin D, the nutrient that enjoys high level media interest, is often referred to as the sunshine nutrient. It is considered to be a vitamin, as it is needed to aid the absorption of calcium. However it’s less well known for its role as a hormone, due to the fact that our bodies manufacture vitamin D as a response to direct exposure to sunlight. In recent years research has suggested that this nutrient may play a very important role in supporting a healthy immune system. It’s available in two forms, more commonly as Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and less often as Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol).What are the natural sources of Vitamin D? You can obtain a good level of Vitamin D by simply going out doors. However, in many parts of the world during the winter months or due to our modern life styles, often requiring us to work in offices with artificial light, it can often be hard to know if you are obtaining enough of this important nutrient from direct sunlight. Good food sources of Vitamin D are known to be cold water fish (such as mackerel, salmon and herring, although one has to be aware of potential pollutants), egg yolks, butter, milk products, and some of the darker green-leafy vegetables also contain a small amount of Vitamin D.
How much do we need daily? The RDA (Minimum recommended allowance) for Vitamin D is 5µg = 200iu with a suggested USL (Upper safety level for long term use) of 1000iu (EVM SUL). Researchers often talk about obtaining a daily intake for adults of approximately 400iu daily, although other researchers often suggest more.
