Review questions recent official vitamin D guidance
Conclusion So, who's right? The authors of the BMJ review are certainly correct in their argument that, ideally, we can get all the vitamin D we need through a combination of diet and sensible exposure to sunlight. They are also right that the evidence does not show that people with normal levels of vitamin D benefit from taking supplements. But we don't live in an ideal world. The truth is many people in the UK eat unhealthy, vitamin D-poor diets and also don't get enough exposure to sunlight. A sensible approach would be to consider taking vitamin D supplements as recommended, but also be alert for possible signs of exc...

Conclusion This Danish birth cohort found an association between lower levels of vitamin D in umbilical cord blood and higher ADHD scores in the young child.

"Experts recommend everyone consider vitamin D supplements over winter," says a headline in today's Daily Mail, while The Guardian urges "Tuck into tuna, salmon and eggs or take vitamin D pills – official health advice". The headlines were prompted by new advice on vitamin D from Public Health England (PHE), which says that children and adults over the age of one should have 10 micrograms (mcg) of vitamin D every day. This means that some people may want to consider taking a supplement. The advice is based on recommendations from the government's Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN)&n...

Men: Watch Out for Male Menopause
Women are not the only ones who end up developing menopause later in life. That's right -- men get menopause too. When men get menopause, it is actually called andropause. The symptoms of andropause are quite similar to the symptoms that women experience before or during menopause. So what is andropause? Andropause is a gradual decline in testosterone. However, this is different from the type of menopause women go through. Menopause in women occurs when the production of hormones suddenly declines. This differs from andropause in that the hormone decline is gradual. In women, the ovaries run out of what it needs to make t...

It resolves in weeks to months depending on the diet. Carotenes are not synthesized by humans and are obtained through the diet. Carotenes are ingested as amorphous solids and crystals and breakdown of cellular membranes increases the bioavailability of the carotenes.
