Vitamin D - The Sunshine Vitamin

What’s the fuss about vitamin D? How do I know if I’m getting enough? How much is enough? As we age, we often hear discussions about the importance of having strong bones, maintaining muscle mass, and avoiding issues like osteoporosis. Getting enough vitamin D is one answer to the question about how to get and stay healthy – at any age.

What does vitamin D do?

Its main purpose is to help the body absorb calcium, magnesium, and phosphate. The body cannot absorb minerals and nutrients without it. Calcium is essential to growing bones (in children) and maintaining those bones (in adults). It helps stop bone loss after menopause and keep bones strong so there’s a lower risk of fracture and falling, and also helps build muscle mass, which we lose every year as we age.

What’s the best way to get vitamin D?

Most people living in the northern half of the US don’t get enough vitamin D six months of the year. The most natural source comes through the skin from exposure to the sun (specifically UVB rays), which is why it’s often referred to as the “sunshine” vitamin. Unfortunately, direct exposure must be limited to protect the skin and reduce skin cancer risk.

Sun exposure for as little as 10-15 minutes three times a week (without sunscreen) will produce the body’s required amount of vitamin D. However, any further time in the sun should include the use of sunscreen. Sun exposure through the window doesn’t provide vitamin D, which explains why so much of the US is deficient half of the year. Spending time outdoors during the winter months is great for getting that vitamin boost, as well as keeping the body and mind active.

Foods naturally containing vitamin D are limited. The best food sources for vitamin D are fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel. Others containing small amounts include cheese, egg yolks, and liver. Mushrooms can also provide vitamin D, especially those exposed to ultraviolet light (such as mushrooms purchased from grocery stores).

Vitamin D is often added to processed foods such as breakfast cereals, orange juice, margarine, and yogurt. Most milk produced in the US is fortified with vitamin D. Check the label for actual amounts.

How much vitamin D do we need?

While the necessity of vitamin D for healthy bodies is an agreed-upon fact, the amount, unfortunately, is still being debated. Discuss this with your health care provider. According to the Mayo Clinic, “The amount of vitamin D your skin makes depends on many factors, including the time of day, season, latitude and your skin pigmentation. Depending on where you live and your lifestyle, vitamin D production might decrease or be completely absent during the winter months. Sunscreen, while important, also can decrease vitamin D production.”

A blood test will reveal your vitamin D level; from there, your doctor can prescribe how much your body needs.

Too much vitamin D can create calcium deposits in the heart and lungs, kidney damage and stones, and symptoms such as constipation, poor appetite, weakness, and weight loss, so be sure to consult your health care provider before adding a supplement to your diet. Too little vitamin D can result in rickets in children, and osteoporosis in adults.

As winter morphs into spring, we can know that spending time in the sunshine is as good for our bodies as it is for our souls.
