Vitamin D Testing
Vitamin D testing is particularly pertinent in Ireland as in 2016 researchers from UCC estimated that one out of every eight people in Ireland is deficient in Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is required for bone health, heart health, mental health (low mood) and immune function. Optimal nutritional status is an important factor to protect against viral infections. Vitamin D is the essential nutrient that humans obtain through exposure to sunlight, and through diet and dietary supplements. Recent studies reported that vitamin D insufficiency has been linked with susceptibility to infection, particularly respiratory infections e.g. Covid-19.
Once identified, an imbalance can be easily remedied allowing clients to take a preventative role in their health.
Supplementation can be highly effective at correcting a Vitamin D deficiency however, excess Vitamin D supplementation can be toxic therefore testing is highly recommended.
Test cost €45
