25 OH Vitamin D

Good health is a state of complete physical, mental and social health. To ensure good health, it is important to consume sufficient and healthy food, containing all vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are unrelated organic substances that occur in many foods and are required in trace amounts for normal metabolic functioning of the body. Deficiency of healthy food from the diet can result in weakness and complications in the body. This brings us to one very important nutrient our body needs for leading a healthy and normal life – Vitamin D. Vitamin D is traditionally known as ‘’Sunshine Vitamin or anti-ricketic factor. There are three ways to maintain adequate Vitamin D status: sunshine exposure, dietary intake and pharmaceutical supplementation. Vitamin D is an extremely important vitamin that serves many important bodily functions, like absorption of calcium and phosphorous, and ensuring a healthy immune system. Vitamin D deficiency is epidemic in India despite of plenty of sunshine. All Indian population studies uniformly point to low 25(OH)D levels despite abundant sunshine. Some major benefits of Vitamin D include:

Bone Strength:

The first thing that comes to mind when we think of strong bones is calcium. So how Vitamin D comes into the picture? Vitamin D regulates the calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood. Research has shown that Vitamin D is an important stimulator of calcium deposition in bones. If a person has Vitamin D deficiency, his/her body slows down and eventually stops depositing calcium in bones. This leads to calcium moving into the bloodstream from the bones. Over a period, this continuous cycle of calcium deposit and withdrawal makes bone weak and susceptible to injuries. If the body doesn’t get sufficient Vitamin D, there is a great risk of abnormalities like osteomalacia (soft bones) or osteoporosis (fragile bones).

Role in Cancer:

One of the strongest inhibitors of cancer cell growth is Vitamin D. By increasing calcium absorption and cell differentiation and reducing metastasis, Vitamin D acts a solid obstructer of Cancer.

Emerging importance in cardiovascular diseases:

A lot of studies have concluded that deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to high blood pressure, heart diseases, heart failures and cardiac arrest. Adequate intake of Vitamin D in the diet can help in lowering blood pressure, improving vascular compliances and improving glycemic control.

Decreasing the risk of Type 2 diabetes:

Research has also shown that Vitamin D can reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

In India, vitamin D deficiency prevalence has been documented to be in range of 50-90% among all the age groups. That brings us to a basic query – how does one know if he/she is suffering from Vitamin D deficiency? The answer to this query is very easy. If a person is experiencing any of the symptoms like pain in muscles/bones, body pain, high blood pressure, Tiredness, Stress, Muscle weakness or spasm, weight gain etc. he/she should immediately go for Vitamin D test. Having blood test to ascertain the levels through Vitamin D test and Vitamin D test is the only way one can find out if he/she has sufficient levels of the Vitamin.
