Are you lacking Vitamin D?
Minimal exposure to sunlight due to work, lifestyle or health concerns may deter you from getting the necessary sunlight required to produce Vitamin D. Here are some groups of people who may not meet the recommended level of Vitamin D.
Decreased exposure to sunlight as a result of their work environment (indoor/office workers) or lifestyle (frequent users of sunscreen)
Our skin contains 7-Dehydrocholesterol that can be converted naturally to Vitamin D through exposure to UV rays from sunlight. Application of sunblock or staying indoors for long hours may reduce the exposure of skin to sunlight hence reducing the absoption of pre-Vitamin D substances from sunlight, which the body convert naturally to Vitamin D.
Elderly, 65 years old and above
As we age, our body's ability to produce Vitamin D from sunlight may decline.
