Emerging Role of Vitamin D in Women’s Health

Author(s):Shipra Jha* and Nahid Siddiqui

Vitamin D being a key nutrient also considered as a steroid prohormone, can be acquired by sun exposure and food sources with enhanced Vitamin D. Earlier, the function of Vitamin D was being restricted to maintenance of calcium and phosphorus levels and bone health. In this review, the focus is reflected on the Hypovitaminosis D and harmful consequences in the health of females and the disorders which are associated with Hypovitaminosis D among women aged 15 years and above. The advantage of Vitamin D to pregnant women is of major significance to fetal programming as well as to the mother’s health. Hypovitaminosis D, a great pandemic issue, is of great interest and concern among researchers, clinicians, and nutritionists as it is prevalent in almost all age groups- infants, girls, pregnant and lactating women, adult women, and elderly women. The effective and inexpensive approach of Vitamin D utilization being a therapeutic agent is of great importance in treating Vitamin D deficiency-associated disorders and increasing the Vitamin D statuse.
