Vitamin D and Calcium

Vitamin D and Calcium

What are Vitamin D and Calcium?

Vitamin D (a hormone) and calcium (a mineral) are nutrients that sustain healthy bones. They are also needed for:

  • Muscle movement

  • Nerve communication

  • Absorption of calcium and phosphorous (vitamin D)

  • Immune system responses (vitamin D)

  • Signaling between cells (calcium)

  • Hormonal secretion (calcium)

  • Blood vessel flow (calcium)

Without enough vitamin D or calcium, your parathyroid glands compensate by producing too much of their hormone, a condition called hyperparathyroidism. That can lead to bone weakening (osteoporosis) and increased fracture risk. 
Other problems from calcium and vitamin D deficiencies include:

  • Skeletal deformities (rickets) in children ages 6-24 months

  • Muscle weakness in children and the elderly (vitamin D only)

Given the crucial role of both nutrients in bone health, The Endocrine Society and the Institute of Medicine recommend certain consumption levels based on age and health. They have not yet found, however, that taking vitamin D provides cardiovascular protection.

How Much Vitamin D and Calcium Do You Need?

The Endocrine Society and The Institute of Medicine have suggested recommended daily allowances (RDA) for vitamin D and calcium, as well as maximum daily consumption amounts that you should not exceed for your safety:

The recommendations come with two precautions:

  • Some people may need more than the RDA (after talking with their doctor) if they are:

    • Obese

    • Taking anticonvulsant medications, glucocorticoids, antifungals such as ketoconazole or medications for AIDS

  • Taking too much of either nutrient appears to be harmful, with:

    • Kidney stones associated with too much calcium from supplements

    • Very high levels of vitamin D (above 10,000 IUs per day) potentially causing kidney and tissue damage

How Do You Get Vitamin D and Calcium?

Your body makes Vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sun, but several factors limit its creation:

  • Living anywhere in the country above latitude 33 degrees (the top of Louisiana)

  • Wearing sunscreen to protect against melanoma

  • Aging, which changes absorption ability

  • The amount of sun you would need to achieve normal blood vitamin D levels is probably more than is safe for your skin, so most people may need supplements to achieve a normal vitamin D level.

Either form of vitamin D (D2 or D3) benefits the body, but very few foods naturally contain the nutrient or are fortified with it. That’s why doctors recommend supplements to make up the difference. Foods containing vitamin D include:

  • Cod liver oil: 400-1,000 IU per teaspoon

  • Wild caught salmon: 600-1,000 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Farmed salmon: 100-250 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Canned salmon: 300-600 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Canned sardines: 300 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Canned mackerel: 250 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Canned tuna: 236 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Fresh shitake mushrooms: 100 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Sundried shitake mushrooms: 1,600 IU per 3.5 oz

  • Egg yolk: 20 IU per yolk

Milk, orange juice, infant formula, yogurt, margarine, butter, cheese and breakfast cereals are often fortified with vitamin D.


Calcium is found in:

  • Dairy products

  • Chinese cabbage

  • Kale

  • Broccoli

  • Fortified fruit juices, drinks, tofu and cereals

Hi, I am 17 year old. I am a judo player. I get injury on my left elbow. Doctor say it is a chip fracture. so what I do I take calcium sandoz injection on my elbow or not.

Hi lybrate-user. First thing you should do is to get an x-ray done of your elbow if it is not done yet. Minor chip fracture if undisplaced will heal my simple immobilization of elbow. You may require a brace or a plaster for few weeks. If it is displaced, then you may need a small surgery to fix it. Injection of calcium over elbow has no role in management and is not recommended. These type of injuries are frequently associated with ligament tears. So proper evaluation is advised.

Calcium Rich Foods

Calcium rich foods - broccoli, yoghurt, cabbage, and milk - should be consumed in higher quantities as they naturally fight muscle spasms and also lessen the pain caused by cramps during menstruation.
