10 reasons why seniors need more vitamin D has the following

  1. Seniors skin produces 3X less Vitamin D for the same sun intensity
  2. Senior guts do not absorb fat soluble vitamins (like D) as well
  3. Seniors have fewer vitamin D receptors as they age Video @ 68 min,16 sec
    (Low VDR do not show up on vitamin D test results)
  4. Seniors are indoors more than when when they were younger
    not as agile, weaker muscles; frail, no longer enjoy high temperatures
    (if outside, stay in the shade), however, seniors might start outdoor activities like gardening, biking, etc.
  5. Seniors wear more clothing outdoors than when younger
    fear skin cancer/wrinkles, sometimes avoid bright light after cataract surgery
  6. Seniors often take various drugs which reduce vitamin D (some would not show up on vitamin D test)
    statins, chemotherapy, anti-depressants, blood pressure, etc
  7. Seniors often have one or more diseases which consume vitamin D ( osteoporosis, diabetes, MS, ...)
  8. Seniors generally put on weight at they age - and a heavier body requires more vitamin D
  9. Seniors often (40%) have fatty livers – which do not process vitamin D as well
  10. Seniors not have as much Magnesium needed to use vitamin D (would not show up on vitamin D test)
  11. Seniors with poorly functioning kidneys do not process vitamin D as well (would not show up on vitamin D test)
