Supplement vitamin deficiency

  1. With a varied diet, most people get enough of all vitamins, with the exception of vitamin D. But also for other vitamins, a deficiency can sometimes occur.

  1. For these people it is wise to take nutritional supplements. For example, to limit osteoporosis. And so pregnant women would do well to take folic acid. Here's an overview.

Vitamin D

  1. Men over seventy and women over fifty can benefit from extra vitamin D to limit osteoporosis as much as possible. Their skin is less able to produce vitamin D under the influence of sunlight. 400 IE applies to women from the age of fifty. For men and women over 70, the advice is 800 IU extra vitamin D. Children up to four years also need extra vitamin D, because they do not eat enough varied food and in the sun - if all goes well - are smeared with sunburn and the skin cannot produce enough vitamin D as a result. Many parents forget to give their children a vitamin D pill, while this is very important. The recommended amount is 400 IU. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding can also take extra vitamin D. The recommended amount is 400 IU. Dark-skinned people or people who barely go outside during the day or who cover their skin can take a vitamin D supplement. Here too, a recommended amount of 400 IU applies.

Vitamin B

  1. The usual Western diet rarely develops a vitamin B12 deficiency. An exception to this are the elderly. Deficiencies are relatively common among them. The most common cause of deficiency is impaired absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, which occurs especially later in life. Even people who do not consume animal products at all for a long time, such as vegans, can develop a vitamin B12 deficiency.

Vitamin K

  1. Infants who are exclusively breastfed need extra vitamin K. It is not the case - as you read everywhere - that breast milk does not contain vitamin K. But as a precaution, all breastfed babies are prescribed vitamin K. Infant formula always contains enough vitamin K. This is regulated by the Commodities Act.

Folic Acid

  1. Folic acid (vitamin B11) is advisable for women who want to conceive or are pregnant (four weeks before to eight weeks after conception). A shortage of vitamin B11 can lead to an 'open spine' in the unborn child. Even if you are unable to eat a healthy and varied diet for a while, it is useful to take a dietary supplement.
