VITAMIN D DOES NOT COME FROM THE SUN

Posted by JENIE=) Saturday, February 13, 2010


It is erroneous to choose sun over choices of sources of Vitamin D. Yes, it is termed as “sunshine vitamin” but not because it comes from the sun instead the sun helps in the formation in the skin (Vitamin D3-cholecalciferol) and in lipids of plants (Vitamin D2-ergocalciferol). Amongst the 16 forms of Vitamin D these two are the important ones in the human nutrition.

In whichever form, Vitamin D is vital in our normal bone and teeth development.
It helps with Calcium and Phosphorus absorption. Deficiency in Vitamin D leads to Tetany (abnormal muscle twitching, cramps and spasms), Rickets in children (severe defective bones and retarded growth) and Osteomalacia or adult rickets (softening of the bones). If there is deficiency, there also is Hypervitaminosis D or excess which leads to renal damage if severe.

One can also get Vitamin D from food sources like butter, milk, cheese, liver and other glandular organs, egg yolk, sardines/salmon and fish liver oils. Plant sources are not as significant as animals. But fear not for your consumption through food intake because minimum requirement is met in normal diet.

Now then, which is the best way of meeting Vitamin D requirement of 5 mcg for average adults? You just need a few hours playing in the early morning or late afternoon sun, and eating a variety of food which helps you in putting not just one vitamin but all of them.
