Vitamin D For The Healthy Living

vitamin d

  • Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, can be produced in the body with mild sun exposure or consumed in food or supplements. It is estimated that around 80% of the indian population has Vitamin D levels less than normal.

  • Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, helping to:
    • Maintain the health of bones and teeth.
    • Support lung function and cardiovascular health.
  • Vitamin D should be tested by individuals less exposed to sunlight, bed ridden patients, those working indoors, older patients with bone and joint pains and patients on Vitamin D supplements for monitoring of therapy.
  • The two most important forms of vitamin D are Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol). While the human body produces Vitamin D3, Vitamin D2 is available in supplements and fortified foods.


  • Common Manifestations of Vitamin D deficiency includes rickets in children, muscle weakness, lethargy and mineral bone density in adults.
