Vitamin D is a water-soluble vitamin essential for maintaining the mineral balance of the body. Although we get some vitamin D through our nutrition, it is mainly produced as our skin gets exposed to the sun minimum 20 minutes a day. Vitamin D together with fatty acids are essential to improve cognitive function and behaviour in certain brain disorders such as depression.

People with dark skin and/or who always use sunscreen has a higher risk of vitamin D deficit. As we get older our skin looses ability to produce vitamin D which is why it is recommended that people +75 years double the dosis of vitamin D intake in order to avoid osteoporosis and fractures. Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium to ensure proper development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones, it also helps maintain adequate levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood and affects the function of the immune system.


Pay special attention if you mix supplements that has both vitamin A and vitamin D - high intake over time can have negative consequences. During pregnancy the intake should not be above 800 micrograms of vitamin A (5 ml of Omega 3 contains 250 mg)
