The Benefits of Vitamin D
The Endocrine Society recommends taking supplements of vitamin D if your level is below 75 nmol/L (30 ng/mL) (the highest recommended daily value). Adults may need 37.5 to 50 mcg (1,500 to 2,000 IU) a day, while children may need less. The United Kingdom government recommends 10 mcg (400 IU) per day for citizens aged four and older.
While many benefits of vitamin D are well-established, there are several additional health benefits. It reduces inflammation and is important for immune function. It also influences neuromuscular function, glucose metabolism, and cell growth. The body has several gene-encoding proteins that regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. Many tissues produce vitamin D receptors and convert 25(OH)D into 1,25(OH)2D. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reviews over 250 studies for its recommendation of D intake.
As we age, our bodies produce less vitamin D. Insufficient levels can lead to many health problems, including parathyroid dysfunction, a common cause of aging. Vitamin D is necessary for the normal development of muscle fibers. Insufficient amounts of vitamin D can affect the strength of muscles and decrease bone density. However, studies have varied results. For example, one recent trial randomized 78 frail and near-frail adults in their late 60s. This study found no difference in muscle strength between groups. Another trial compared 100 community-dwelling men and women with low levels of serum 25(OH)D.
