What level of vitamin D is right for me?

An estimated 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 children in the UK have low levels of vitamin D according to NICE statistics, but how do you know if you’re getting enough?

Understanding how much vitamin D you require can be confusing. There are multiple factors that affect the amount of vitamin D you should be supplementing, including:

  • Age
  • Weight
  • Skin colour
  • Time of year
  • Sun exposure
  • Diet
How do I know if I have a vitamin D deficiency?

Some symptoms of deficiency include aching bones, weak muscles and low immunity. Though the best way to be sure of your vitamin D levels is to get tested.

The NHS offer an accurate test, which can be sent out by post and provides a clear interpretation of the vitamin D level in the blood based on the UK Department of Health:

  • More than 50nmol/l = adequate
  • 30-49nmol/l = insufficient
  • 15-30nmol/l = deficient
  • Less than 15nmol/l = severe deficiency
How do I achieve an optimum level of vitamin D?

Because of the universal recommendation that we ALL must supplement a ‘one size fits all’ dosage recommendation has been chosen to attempt to protect everyone. In August 2015 Public Health England doubled its recommendation from 200iu daily to 400iu daily.

However, requirements actually vary dramatically from person to person so here is a guide to what is the best level for you and your family:

For optimal vitamin D maintenance and a healthy body, adults living in the nothern hemisphere should receive a daily intake of 25mcg (1000iu) for every 25kg of body weight.

This table is for adult supplementation only, for children under the minimum weight, it is not recommended to exceed 400IU per day.

Weight (Kg) Weight (st, lbs) Recommended daily intake (IU)
<25kg <3st 13lbs 1000IU
50kg 7st 12lbs 2000IU
75kg 11st 11lbs 3000IU
100kg + 15st 10lbs + 4000IU

These guidelines are based on BetterYou’s own estimations, taking into account the latest research and government recommendations. For specific advice, please speak to your health practitioner.
