Many people do not have optimal levels of vitamin D - with possible consequences for bone health, among other things. Although the human body can produce vitamin D itself, it can only do so if it is exposed to sufficient direct UV-B radiation from sunlight. This is often not the case, especially during the darker months of the year.
Over 60 per cent of adults in Germany have an insufficient supply of vitamin D and around 30 per cent of all adults even have a vitamin D deficiency, according to the Robert Koch-Institut. Vitamin D deficiency occurs when vitamin D is not present in the body in sufficient quantities over a longer period of time and clinically relevant symptoms occur.
The diet only contributes a relatively small proportion to the vitamin D supply, as only a few foods contain significant amounts of vitamin D. It can therefore be useful to use a dietary supplement to support the vitamin D supply.
