We asked Dr Glenville for any tips on what you can do to help keep your Vitamin D levels up:
We need exposure to sunlight within a specific UVB spectrum for the production of vitamin D through our skin.
You are most at risk you do not go out much in the daytime, do not expose your skin to the sunlight and constantly wear make-up or cosmetics with in-built sun protection factors which you may not realise are in the beauty products.
The tone of your skin affects vitamin D production, so the darker your skin the less vitamin D production and covering up large areas of skin for religious reasons will also reduce vitamin D production.
Natural food sources of vitamin D are few. Oily fish and eggs are a good source. 100g of grilled salmon contains 284ius of vitamin D and a 100g of tinned pilchards contains 560ius of vitamin D, the yolk of one egg contains about 20ius o
There is some concern that many people today are not getting much vitamin D from their diet especially those who are eating junk food and not eating any or very little oily fish or eggs.
Scientists are noting a rise in the disease rickets in children who are not eating enough vitamin D rich foods and spending little time outdoors. They are more often sitting in front of the television or computer screens.
We get most of our vitamin D through sunlight so it is not easy to get all the vitamin D we need just from the food we eat and we can become deficient in the winter in the UK, that’s why it’ important to supplement with a good quality Vitamin D3.
