Vitamin D is Important to Your Health

Vitamin D is Important to Your Health

Is the COVID-19 Pandemic keeping you indoors?

Your Vitamin D levels can dwindle by limiting your exposure to sun in the era of COVID-19, so don’t let the summer of 2020 turn into a Vitamin D winter. Leading endocrinology societies and bone health experts* issued a warning to adults worldwide to avoid a deficiency during COVID!

While there is no evidence that Vitamin D supplements will prevent or treat COVID-19 infection, Vitamin D enhances the immune system and helps keep bones strong. Leading endocrinology societies and bone health experts alert adults to be sure they are getting enough Vitamin D from food and supplements.

How much Vitamin D do I need every day?

If you…

  • Have had WLS, ASMBS Nutrition Guidelines recommend 75-150 mcg/day[i].
  • Are 50+ years, Endocrine Society recommends 125 mcg/day1.
  • Are 19 -50 years, general population, DV is 20 mcg/day1.

Note:  More Vitamin D may be needed to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels in the blood.
