It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body.
The Vitamin D Council (VDC) is a non-profit organization of medical professionals, vitamin D researchers, and concerned citizens whose goal is to educate professionals and the public on vitamin D deficiency and its associated health risks. The VDC recommends an average of 5,000 IU/day vitamin D for adults. Better yet, they suggest testing 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and dosing accordingly. Ideal blood levels should fall between 50-80 ng/mL.
Infants should not receive more than 400 IU/day, which is the daily dose of vitamin D supplement that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends for breast-fed and partially breast-fed infants.
