Experts have been warning that patients could be getting the wrong dose, here’s an easy guide to getting the amount you need
Andrew Thomas, founder of natural health company BetterYou says”Vitamin D dosage should be based on body weight, and the work that we have done with Birmingham City Hospital has produced a very clear indication as to what levels are required for life in the Northern Hemisphere.”
“To maintain healthy levels of vitamin D within the body a daily dosage level of 1000iu for every 25kg of body weight is required. This means that an average adult living in the United Kingdom requires 3,000iu (75mcg) of vitamin D daily to maintain a healthy body (primarily bone strength and immune system)” he continued.
“Ninety per cent of our essential vitamin D should come from our skin’s unprotected exposure to the sun, with only ten per cent gained through diet. However, as the UK’s winter sunshine is too weak to stimulate production of vitamin D, a daily dosage is essential to keep the body at its optimum.”
“People can also test their vitamin D levels with accurate, non-invasive, low cost at home test kits to ensure that they are taking the correct strength”.
