Some people need constant vitamin D intake. This was told by Professor Suvi Virtanen from the Institute of Health and Social Welfare of Finland.
Vitamin is very useful for people who spend little time outdoors and strongly cover their skin with clothes.
“Vitamin D is also needed by dark-skinned people, children, young people, pregnant women and people over 75 years old. At the same time, recommendations on dosages may vary,” the expert shared in an interview with Helsingin Sanomat.
In the winter months, the dosage of vitamin D should increase. You can limit its use in April, and resume taking it in October.
“It is possible to assess the level of this vitamin in the body according to the diet. If a person aged 18 to 74 does not consume dairy and vitamin D products or does not eat fish several times a week, he needs to take 10 micrograms of vitamin from October to the end of March,” Virtanen added.
