With the discovery of Vitamin A in 1913, many scientists began researching the link between food and health. In 1914, Sir Edward Mellanby, a British scientist and physician, was asked to look into the cause of rickets. He carried out his research on a group of dogs and concluded the experiment in 1919. In his conclusion, he found that a component of cod-liver oil was essential in preventing rickets. His work laid the foundation for other scientists to later discover that rickets is prevented by Vitamin D, found in abundance in cod-liver oil.
You probably would have heard people telling you that you should stand under the sun in order to get the vitamins you need. Scientists have learnt that sunlight pushes the body to make its own vitamin D. And while this is the easiest and most cost-effective method, standing under the sun (and no, you cannot wear any sunblock in order for this to be effective) for too long would can cause skin cancer and therefore, this method is not an official recommendation.
Another way to obtain Vitamin D would be through food. Like any other vitamins, Vitamin D can be found in small amounts in a few foods, like fatty fish, mushrooms, egg yolks, cheese, and beef liver. But eating these foods all the time may not be good for your overall health. Which is why supplements are recommended for people who need more Vitamin D than what can be found in normal everyday food.
Among the people who are at risk of not getting enough Vitamin D are:
- Pregnant and breastfeeding women
- Babies and children under the age of 5
- People aged 65 years old and above
- People who have darker skin (namely people who are of African, African-Caribbean, and South Asian origin)
Lack of Vitamin D can cause various health issues. Namely:
- Bone aches/pain
- Increased blood pressure
- Muscle weakness
- Erectile dysfunction
- Heart disease
You may ask, "So, what are the good sides to taking Vitamin D?". Other than obviously preventing the top health issues from occurring, having enough Vitamin D can prevent cancers of the the breast, colon, prostate, ovaries, esophagus, and lymphatic system. Not only that, if you are suffering from high blood pressure, Vitamin D has been proven to be able to reduce your blood pressure as well as lower the risk of type 1 diabetes.
