We live in a vitamin-D-deficient-area

# Micronutrients | 5. October 2015

Vitamin D can be produced in the body with the help of the sun, but with us, it is only in the months from May to September. And that is only if you spend longer than half an hour scantily clad in the sun.
Even if you lived 47 degrees latitude north (which is approximately at the level of Canada) as from October, you would have no place in the sun. It is then no longer high enough in the sky to supply our skin with the UV rays at the necessary wavelength (290-315 mm). The UV index must be greater than 3, so that vitamin D can be formed. Here you can test how high the UV index is: www.wetteronline.de/uv-index.

In addition, many people wear creams and body lotions with a sun protection factor up to 30 (SPF). These sunscreens block not only sunlight, but also block the formation of vitamin D in the body by more than 95 {47dfc70c9bf48e08186491bbb51bc8e4c7dc2b777549e2e8cf46bf184b8c6302}.
And also, our time spent in the fresh air is limited: we sit a lot in enclosed spaces and work in offices with artificial light. Bulbs and fluorescent tubes are not a substitute for sunlight!
And it would be very difficult if you wanted to accommodate the need for vitamin D through food: recommended daily dosage is 2,000 – 4,000 IU of vitamin D and that is contained for example in

4.2 to 8.4 kg of butter!
2.7 to 5.4 kg mushrooms!
455-910 g sardines!
294-588 g salmon!

This is hardly achievable, and who eats fresh fish daily?
The functions of vitamin D in the body are very diverse, a variety of scientific studies support the need for vitamin D. So, there are many different products to keep the vitamin D content in the body or also increase it to the necessary level. Just ask us!
