Vitamin D is essential for the functioning of many important systems in the body, and recent research has suggested that we may need much more vitamin D than previously thought for optimum immune function and long-term health. Adequate vitamin D levels may reduce the risk of many chronic diseases in the long term, such as Type 1 Diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and some cancers. Cholecalciferol, also known as Vitamin D3, is more biologically active in the body than vitamin D2. In some climates people may get adequate vitamin D3 from sunlight, but in cooler climates with longer winters, vitamin D deficiency is quite common.
The amount of vitamin D3 that an individual needs varies due to a variety of factors, but recent research suggests that the 400 IU RDI is not sufficient for most people, especially if they are unable to get their dose from the sun’s rays. Some factors that contribute to vitamin D deficiency include:
Spending most of the day indoors.
Wintertime & less sunny climates.
Darker skin tone (melanin blocks UVB rays, which facilitate vitamin D production in the skin).
