Vitamin D - everyone needs it, many lack it!
Almost 60% of the German population is insufficiently supplied with vitamin D. *
As an essential nutritional component, vitamin D is increasingly at the center of medical research when it comes to maintaining health, performance and well-being. As a central component of numerous metabolic processes in the body, vitamin D is an important factor for our vitality. However, our lifestyle has become significantly less sunshine in recent years. Many people spend practically the whole day in closed rooms. We only manage to cover 10% of our vitamin D requirements through food. In order to avoid an undersupply, vitamin D should therefore also be supplied from outside if necessary.

Only 1/2 to 1 tablet per day

  • For the prevention of vitamin D deficiency diseases

How much vitamin D does the body need?
According to the German Nutrition Society (DGE), the daily requirement for vitamin D is 400 IU (10μg) for babies up to 12 months, 800 IU (20μg) for children from the 1st year of age and adults.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has a maximum daily dose of 4,000 IU for adults and children from 11 years of age and 2,000 IU for children up to 10 years of age as the upper limit for lifelong harmless vitamin D intake (sum of food, food supplements and pharmaceuticals) IE set.

Can you get vitamin D through food?
Vitamin D is primarily formed through exposure to the sun; we can only take in around 10 percent of our vitamin D requirement through diet. A pure food supply can only be achieved if large quantities of oily fish such as herring, eel and salmon are regularly consumed.

Can I soak up sunlight in the solarium and absorb vitamin D in the skin?
Unfortunately, solariums are no substitute for a lack of exposure to the sun. By equipping it with UV filters, the amount of UV-B is severely limited.

In Britain's mostly sunny months from April to October, fair-skinned young people are enough to take 15 minutes of sunbathing several times a week. Due to the storage capacity of the body, a supply of vitamin D could be built up at least for the first few weeks in autumn and winter.
