Most major health organisations in Australia have declared that significant numbers of Australians are Vit D deficient.
If we accept recommendations for sun exposure, how can so many be deficient?
There are so many factors which may explain why so many Australians are Vit D deficient.
These include:age, lifestyle, latitude, cloud cover, smog, season, ethnicity, dietary inadequacy, obesity, suncream, impaired absorption, increased requirement, increased excretion, soap and clothing.
So it is so important that you get your Vit D levels tested. Deficiency is classified as serum levels less than 50nmol/L.
Vit D absorption is enhanced by taking synergistic minerals such as calcium, magesium, Vit K and boron. So it is important to chose the right Vit D supplement and address any underlying causes.
Vit D deficiency may also be increased with probiotics.
