Alberta Health Services - Nutrition Services has done an in-depth review of vitamin D recommendations for healthy populations.
Since we can’t get enough vitamin D from food to meet our body’s needs, Alberta Health Services recommends that all healthy Albertans take a vitamin D supplement. The table below shows how much vitamin D supplement we need to take at different ages.
Some people may need higher amounts of vitamin D, such as those at risk of osteoporosis. Speak with your healthcare provider if you think you may need higher amounts of vitamin D.
