VITAMIN D

The “Surya” Shakthi

Vitamin D is essential for normal functioning of bones, neuromuscular, immune function and cellular growth. Though found in few foods, majority of it is produced endogenously from exposure to direct sunlight that activates the vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D supplementation plays an important role in its deficiency for those exposed to minimal sunlight and consumes fewer foods fortified with it.

Why we need Vitamin D?

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

International Osteoporosis Foundation in 2009 reported that about 96% of neonates, 91% of healthy school girls, 78% of healthy hospital staff, and 84% of pregnant women in North India and 40% of males and 70% of females in south India were diagnosed with hypovitaminosis D(1-2). Vitamin D deficiency leads to deteriorated bone health, such as rickets in children and osteomalacia and osteoporosis in adults (2).

Vitamin D deficiency has been reported in several chronic conditions associated with increased inflammation and deregulation of the immune system, such as diabetes, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis. These observations, together with experimental studies, suggest a critical role for vitamin D in the modulation of immune function.
