Study reveals high levels of vitamin D inadequacy in UK adolescents

The research identifies the level of vitamin D intake needed by adolescents to avoid vitamin D deficiency and ensure adequacy. Vitamin D plays an essential role in bone growth during adolescent years, helping to achieve peak bone mass by late adolescence – believed to contribute to reducing age-related bone loss in later life.
