Benefits of vitamin D

  • Aids in calcium and phosphate absorption
    Calcium and phosphate are essential nutrients that help with the development of strong, healthy bones.
  • Improves muscle strength
    Vitamin D increases muscle strength and mass, and slows down muscle loss. This is important for older adults because muscle mass decreases as we age due to a drop in activity levels.
  • Maintains healthy bone density
    Vitamin D keeps your bones strong by maintaining bone density. This can also reduce the risk of fractures as we age. 

Daily recommended vitamin D intake

The daily recommended vitamin D dosage for adults is

  • 19 - 70 years old: 600 IU
  • 71 and above: 800 IU

    Children aged 18 and below should not be given vitamin D supplements unless they have been prescribed by a doctor or health professional.
