(PRWEB) August 31, 2014
An analysis of 32 studies compiled by University of California, San Diego researchers has revealed a link between lower levels of Vitamin D and a higher mortality rate. The study, published in the August 2014 issue of American Journal of Public Health, specifically assesses 25-Hydroxyvitamin D, the main form of Vitamin D found in blood.
Researchers found that study participants with levels of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D lower than 9 nanograms/milliliter (ng/mL) were twice as likely to die prematurely as those with levels above 50 ng/mL. About half of participants at risk of premature death had levels of 30 ng/ml. The compiled studies included 566,583 participants from around the world, with an average age of 55. According to the National Institute of Health, average blood levels of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D among Americans is 30 to 74 ng/mL.
The National Institute of Health recommends 600 International Units (IU) of Vitamin D daily for those between the ages of 1 and 70. Researchers believe this amount can be safely increased, as long as blood levels do not exceed 200 ng/mL. They also recommend that levels of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D be checked annually.
The body creates Vitamin D, an essential nutrient that helps build and maintain strong bones and teeth, when skin is exposed directly to the sun. Vitamin D is also taken in from food and supplements.
