New information on the role of vitamin D in health and disease is constantly emerging in research, especially on its role in corona at present. Vitamin D not only protects the bones of the body but also plays a role in preventing various infectious and non-communicable diseases. Vitamin D deficiency in childhood (VDD) and other childhood diseases including rickets and later in adulthood, especially in women with osteoporosis. And a decrease in density (osteoporosis) and an increased tendency to fracture. Vitamin D has anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to be associated with increased severity and increased risk of Covid 19 infections (Grant W et al. Nutrition2020, Biasalke HF. NFS Journal, June 2020). Evidence of vitamin D deficiency has been found with the dangerous inflammation caused by cytokine storms in acute corona. In old age, the skin loses its ability to produce vitamin D from sunlight (Caney R, Nutrition 2006) and this can be a risk factor for coronary heart disease in old age.in our life importance of vit-d is incredible.
Studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and cancer (breast, ovary, colon). Sources of Vitamin D:
Sunlight (UV rays) is the main source of vitamin D. More vitamin D is available from sunlight (UV-B 290-315 nm) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunlight (UV-B) enters the skin and produces active vitamin D in the skin through photosynthesis, which travels to different parts of the body and plays a different physiological role. Some foods without sunlight also contain vitamin D, such as marine oily fish (tuna, salmon, cod, hilsa), egg yolks, foods rich in vitamin D.
Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency:
1) Lack of sunlight: In the northern hemisphere, sunlight is not sufficient, especially in winter.
2) not applying sunlight on the skin despite having adequate sunlight; This is more applicable for Bangladesh. 3) Even after getting sunlight, its bioavailability is not available. The main reasons are as follows;
A) Most of the skin is covered with a garment even when exposed to sunlight. Especially the hijabi women who are mostly covered by skin wear garments.
B) Black or dark skin of non-whites produces less vitamin D from sunlight than whites.
C) Air Pollution: Excess ozone in the air in particular consumes the sun’s UV-B photons and as a result the production of vitamin D in the skin is hampered by sunlight. D) Applying sunscreen cream on the skin.
The main reason for vitamin D deficiency is that sunlight does not enter the skin for the homework of the current life journey. Many women do not allow themselves and their children to be exposed to sunlight for fear that their skin color will turn black.
Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) makes everyone more or less a health problem. However, vitamin D deficiency in women and children is more significant. This is because one of them has an evil formula or cycle at work. In our country, almost all socio-economic women are deficient in vitamin D (Islam AZ.Eur J Clin Nutr 2002). A significant number of adolescents and women have to cover their skin with a cloth and hijab for religious and social reasons, especially veiled women, even when they are out of the house
As a result, less vitamin D is produced in their skin. When such adolescents and women get married and become pregnant, their fetus (fetus) also gets less vitamin D from the mother and the newborn baby is born with less body stipend. Vitamin D deficiency is normally caused after birth. If only breast milk is drunk for up to 6 months, then the vitamin D in the baby’s body is further reduced, because although there are many benefits in breast milk, there is no vitamin D (Bishop N 2006, Hillman GD 1990). This vitamin D deficiency persists even in childhood, because even in school life, current children do not get sunlight for homecoming, especially the lack of playgrounds in urban children, the lack of sunlight indoors and outdoors due to the surrounding skyscraper attic. In my research (publication) Dhaka 90% of urban children are deficient in vitamin D, while 30% of rural children are deficient in vitamin D. These children later have a reduced rate and density before reaching adulthood and are more susceptible to infectious and non-communicable diseases.
Things to do: At present, many people are living at home due to the epidemic and as a result, vitamin D is declining. Roof, importance of vit -d can not be describe’

★ Different marine fish contain vitamin D.
For example, salmon, sardines, tuna, mackerel will get vitamin D. Mushrooms, orange juice (rich in vitamin D), eggs, milk and beef liver also contain vitamin D.

Vitamin D and our children
“Rickets is caused by a lack of vitamin D. Rickets is a deadly disease. In this disease the bones of the body become weak and bent. The main source of vitamin D is sunlight. ”- This is something we all know. We all read it in science or general knowledge books as children.
The main source of vitamin D is sunlight – assuring us that there is no need to do extra. So rest assured- there is nothing to think about.
Is that so?
We middle class urban dwellers – our children grow up in two / three large five-room flats. This flat is their field-ghat, sky-wind. We block it again with AC-CC (camera). Do the children who grow up in these flats get enough sunlight?
Have you noticed that the skin of urban children is smoother and fairer than the skin of rural children, it is sometimes seen that the skin of these children is much softer. But this is not the result of actual use of various advertisements displayed in the media. This is because these children lack adequate light and air.
Have you ever competed in a race between a village child who grew up laughing and playing on the field, and a child who grew up in a city flat? Who won? Of course the village child because his bones are strong. But is he getting more care and nourishment than the city child which is why he is tough and energetic?
The child in the city is deprived of sunlight, one of the elements of bone formation. Lack of vitamin D from sunlight not only weakens the bones, but also impairs the proper growth of the baby, slows down the development of the brain and even causes digestive problems. These children cannot easily digest any food and often suffer from diarrhea or other stomach problems.
I think we need to think now, are the children in the city growing up as a weaker generation?
We all know that Dhaka is not a planned city. But now there are many suburbs and model towns – these are planned. Have you noticed the open field-wide parks in these cities? I did not see. In these places advertisements of hospitals-universities-schools-huge shopping centers can be seen. But I haven’t seen the huge field ad – maybe it’s unnecessary for the boss
We know that one of the essential elements for our body is vitamin D. The main source of which is sunlight. However, some foods contain small amounts of vitamin D. Such as: some marine fish (tuna, mackerel, salmon), mushrooms, beef liver, egg yolks, cheese, etc.
The school and college have been closed for several months due to coronation. But our children are under house arrest. We adults are not going out without need. As a result, the source of vitamin D is being deprived of sunlight.
Let’s know what happens due to lack of vitamin D.
Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium in our bones. In the absence of this, the density of our bones decreases and the bones become weak. Which is known as osteoporosis in adults. This can lead to broken bones.
And children get rickets due to lack of vitamin D. This causes the bones of the children to become weak. If proper treatment is not done in time, it is difficult to walk.
When will you go to the sun? The sweet sunshine that is within ten in the morning is the best. Because then there is no ultraviolet ray in sunlight. Twenty minutes in the sun is enough.
So said that going out in the sun every day is good for our body, especially for children.
Vitamin D deficiency can be dangerous
A recent study found that 80 percent of corona patients have vitamin D deficiency. Due to vitamin D deficiency these patients could not be treated properly, the patient’s recovery was delayed or he died.
Vitamin D is a very important vitamin for the body. Lack of this vitamin causes many metabolic disorders in the body. Vitamin D plays an important role in boosting the body’s immune system. Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium, an essential ingredient in the body. Lack of vitamin D weakens the bones of the body. Not only that, vitamin D deficiency can lead to various heart complications and disruption of normal breathing.
Vitamin D deficiency is normal for those who stay at home for fear of corona infection. Therefore, it is very important to be aware and try to make up for their vitamin D deficiency.
The main source of vitamin D is sunbathing. Cholesterol is found in the skin cells of our body. The ultraviolet light of sunlight breaks down the cholesterol inside our skin and produces vitamins D2 and D3. So if we sunbathe enough or stay in the sun, our vitamin D deficiency is filled. Those who stay away from sunlight day by day are bound to have vitamin D deficiency.
What to do in that case?
To make up for the vitamin D deficiency in the body, we need to choose foods rich in vitamin D. Now I will write about which foods contain vitamin D. Egg yolks (do not stop eating eggs for fear of cholesterol, or do not eat egg whites without yolks. Eating eggs increases cholesterol – do not listen to such words. These uneducated and ignorant people), milk, yogurt, other dairy products, butter, Cheese, oily fish, fish liver oil, salmon, tuna, herring fish,
to know about honey visit
Mushrooms, fruit juices, cereals, etc. contain enough vitamin D.
Vitamin D supplements can be taken if food fails to make up for adequate vitamin D deficiency. Remember, however, that vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. This vitamin does not dissolve in water. Therefore, taking an excessive amount of vitamin D will cause adverse reactions in the body. So take vitamin D as advised by your doctor.
A young man / woman needs ( 600micrograms) of international units per day and an adult (such as 60 years) needs 600 (20 micrograms) of international units of vitamin D.
