Vitamin D Deficiency

According to FSAI, Vitamin D deficiency is common in Ireland and across Europe. 

In Ireland, cloudy conditions can reduce the capability of the body to synthesise Vitamin D, even in the Summer.

Nutrient deficiency is prevalent across all age groups and ethnicities. However, children, teenagers, pregnant women and people of dark-skinned ethnicity are at the highest risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D plays key role in the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, it is especially important to consume sufficient vitamin D during high-growth stages of life. These include childhood, teenage years and during pregnancy. Vitamin D facilitates skeletal growth and development in kids and for the unborn foetus during pregnancy. It also supports the mother’s bone health during a time of change in the body.
