Are you among the 87% who do not get enough vitamin D?

*** International Unity (IEor I.E. or English IU from International unit,) is a unit of measurement of a quantity of a substance, based on measured biological activity (or effect). 1 IU Vitamin D: the biological equivalent of 0.025 μg cholecalciferol/ergocalciferol 

Vitamin D research for the elderly

In 2016, a group of European researchers conducted a study* on the intake of Vitamin D among older people.

The study was carried out in the Netherlands in the vicinity of Wageningen.

245 people from between 65 and 80 years of age participated.

The Vitamin D intake was determined and compared with the recommendations of the Health Council.

For people over 70 years of age, the Health Council recommends 20 µg** or 800 International Units (IE)***. 

The researchers state that the need for micronutrients increases with agebut that this greater need is not being met.

This is striking because the Health Council's advice is already low.

Scientific research has shown that we at least 3,000 to 4,000 IU vitamin D daily need.

Insufficient intake of vitamin D

The study showed that 87% of participants not enough Vitamin D received through the combination of:

  • the regular diet
  • food enriched with vitamin D
  • supplements

Of the people who took no supplements, even 98% was deficient in vitamin D inside.

This finding of a high percentage of insufficient vitamin D intake is in line with other nutritional studies among Dutch elderly people.

Previous studies have found comparable resultsBetween 81% and 100% of the Dutch elderly do not get enough vitamin D.

No unambiguous symptoms

A lack of sufficient vitamin D goes rarely accompanied by unambiguous symptoms.

Characteristics are often general in nature, such as fatiguelowered resistancemuscle weaknessdiscomfort in the bones or gloomy and depressed feelings.

Unfortunately, this often removes the source of the symptoms unrecognised until critical signs of shortages performance such as falls or osteoporosis.

All vitamins & minerals

It is therefore important to take extra vitamin D to be in line with the recommendations of the Health Council (800 IU) or even better, in line with the most recent scientific findings (3000 - 4000 IU).

We must take into account that there are usually also other vitamin and mineral deficiencies are.

It is therefore wise to all vitamins and minerals supplement.

The best results are achieved when we use the joint support of 15 vitamins, 10 minerals and all trace elements.

Here it is important to keep these nutrients in an optimal balance and the right quantities to take.

Vitamins are members of a large, intensely collaborative team, which support and promote each other's action.
