Deficiency of Vitamin D in Urban Indians

India is a sunny country and we would expect Indians to have plenty of Vitamin D (For the uninitiated, Vitamin D is produced by our skin in presence of sunlight). However, the truth is very different. Urban India has some of the highest rates of Vitamin D deficiency in the world.

Since this sunshine vitamin is a catalyst of the absorption of calcium in our bones, its lack can cause severe body pains and brittle bones.

Why is Vitamin D essential for us?

  • Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption in the body
  • Vitamin D helps build the immunity of the body
  • Some estimates suggest that over 80% of Indians have less than normal Vitamin D levels.

Food Sources of Vitamin D

  • Sunlight is perhaps the best source of Vitamin D. Exposure of skin to sunlight spurs the body to create Vitamin D. However, there are different views on how much sunlight is needed in which geography and for what skin. Generally, 20 – 25 minutes of sunlight exposure is recommended in early morning.
  • Fatty fish like salmon and tuna are also a source of Vitamin D for non-vegetarians.
  • Certain types of mushrooms also contain vitamin D

However, in the Indian context, it is best to go for vitamin D supplement if deficiency is found. Your doctor may be able to recommend the best plan for vitamin d supplementation. Many times, you may also be required to take calcium supplements with Vitamin D dosage.
