In the Nordic countries, vitamin D is in short supply
Vitamin D is formed in the skin when exposed to sunlight during the spring and summer months in Sweden. Between May and September, absorption through the skin is at its best, provided you don’t use sunscreen or full clothing. During the summer months, the sun is the primary source of vitamin D, but from late autumn until spring there is really no significant synthesis in the body, as UV-B radiation is filtered out in the atmosphere when the sun is low. Until just a few years ago, many people assumed that the amount of vitamin D synthesized in the body during the summer should cover the need during the winter as well, since vitamin D is fat-soluble and can therefore be stored in the body. However, it is now known that the synthesized amount is often not sufficient and that only some people have produced the amount required to cover a larger part of the need even during the winter months. Many people are therefore at risk of having low levels of vitamin D for much of the year.

Sunscreen protects – but also blocks vitamin D synthesis
The use of sunscreens has an important role in protecting the skin from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays. It also blocks the process by which the sun’s rays synthesize and create our natural deposits of vitamin D in the skin. Skin color also plays a role in the effectiveness of absorption. The darker the skin color, the less vitamin D is absorbed. Northerners with very light skin like to apply a little extra oil to avoid the risk of getting red and burned, which is absolutely right, but then we also miss out on the vitamin D. In fact, many people choose to protect their skin with sunscreen instead. Many choose instead to protect themselves with full clothing or lie in the shade, which also means that we miss out on vitamin D from the sun.

Vitamin D in the diet
Unfortunately, vitamin D is not found in large quantities in the diet, which is why some dairy products, for example, are fortified with vitamin D. It is also found in smaller amounts in eggs and meat. Salmon, sardines, mackerel and other fatty fish are good sources of vitamin D. Some mushrooms, such as chanterelles, do contain some vitamin D but in a more inactive form.

Affects key systems in the body
Vitamin D has the ability to influence many of the body’s cellular functions, which in turn affects our health in a variety of ways. Vitamin D plays an important role in the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus, in the normal functioning of the nervous system and muscles, and in the normal functioning of the immune system. Other parts of the body also depend on vitamin D, such as the bones and teeth, and it is needed for the cell division process.
