Vitamin D In Plant Foods

Vitamin D In Plant Foods

Groups at Risk of Vitamin D InadequacyPeople who are darkskinned, homebound or obese are at greater risk for vitamin D inadequacy, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements. Older people, breastfed children and vegans may also be at risk. Vitamin D is absorbed at the upper part of the small intestine with the help of fat. So people who have intestinal surgeries or fat malabsorption may have difficulty absorbing vitamin D from foods and are more likely to develop vitamin D deficiency. Putting on too much sunscreen or protective clothing can block the skin production of vitamin D and increase the risk of vitamin D deficiency.
