Almost 99% of your vitamin D supply is used for regulating the calcium in the body with the remaining part utilised for strengthening the immune system and maintaining muscle strength, all of which have benefits for dancers. Long hours training inside, especially in winter can lead to vitamin D deficiency due to a lack of sunlight. So why should dancers consider supplementing?
An extensive review carried out by The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) has suggested that everyone over the age of one needs to consume 10 micrograms of vitamin D each day in order to protect bone and muscle health. Public health officials say, in winter months, people should consider getting this from 10 microgram supplements, if their diet is unlikely to provide it.
Vitamin D3 is important for us all, some more so than others. In November 2014 the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) published their new guidelines for increasing Vitamin D supplement use amongst high risk groups.
