There is substantial evidence that the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is high across Europe, particularly, but not exclusively, among those resident at Northerly latitudes, and current dietary intakes of most populations, young and adult, are well short of the newly established DRVs.

Vitamin D and Calcium: A Systematic Review of Health Outcomes (Update).

The current report identified one new systematic review published since the original report that addressed whether a dose response relationship exists between dietary and supplemental vitamin D intake and serum 25(OH)D concentrations.

Electrolyte minerals intake and cardiovascular health

The role of dietary and or supplemental sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, in cardiovascular health, as well as their clinical applications, benefits, and risks for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, in general population are discussed.

Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010: Implications for Cardiovascular Disease

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends nutrient-dense foods including fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean protein foods including seafood, and vegetable oils that beneficially affects blood lipids and other CVD risk factors.

Vitamin D Dietary Intake through Dairy Products to Reduce the Risk of Osteoporosis

The recommended daily intake of dietary vitamin D is strictly correlated with age, ranging from 5 μg for infants, children, teen-agers and adults, including women during pregnancy and lactation, to 15 μg for people over 65 years.

Calcium Intake, Major Dietary Sources and Bone Health Indicators in Iranian Primary School Children

The need for planning appropriate nutrition strategies for overcoming inadequate calcium intake in school age children in the city of Tehran is inevitable.

Calcium intake from diet and supplement use during early pregnancy: the Expect study I

Forty-two percent of Dutch pregnant women have an inadequate calcium intake, and most of the supplements used do not contain sufficient amounts to correct this inadequate intake.

Dietary Intake of Vitamin D from Dairy Products Reduces the Risk of Osteoporosis

It is important to maintain correct dietary calcium-phosphate balance in order to have a healthy life, reducing the risk of osteoporotic fractures in older people.

Efficacy of daily 800 IU vitamin D supplementation in reaching vitamin D sufficiency in nursing home residents: cross-sectional patient file study

In most of these residents, vitamin D supplementation once a week with cholecalciferol capsules containing 5600 IU (equivalent to 800 IU daily) resulted in vitamin D sufficiency (serum 25(OH)D ≥ 50 nmol/L).

Usual nutrient intakes of US infants and toddlers generally meet or exceed Dietary Reference Intakes: findings from NHANES 2009-2012.

Most toddlers were at risk for inadequate intakes of vitamins D and E and had diets low in fiber and potassium, and the sources contributing to excessive intakes of vitamin A and zinc among infants and toddlers may need further evaluation.



Effectiveness and safety of vitamin D in relation to bone health.

The largest body of evidence on vitamin D status and bone health was in older adults with a lack of studies in premenopausal women and infants, children and adolescents, and there was fair evidence of an association between low circulating 25(OH)D concentrations and established rickets.

25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and the risk of mortality in the general population.

The lowest quartile of 25(OH)D level (<17.8 ng/mL) is independently associated with all-cause mortality in the general population, and the adjusted models of CVD and cancer mortality revealed a higher risk, which was not statistically significant.

The vitamin D and cancer conundrum: aiming at a moving target.

Circulating 25-Hydroxyvitamin D and Risk of Pancreatic Cancer

A pooled nested case-control study of participants from 8 cohorts within the Cohort Consortium Vitamin D Pooling Project of Rarer Cancers to evaluate whether prediagnostic circulating 25(OH)D concentrations were associated with the development of pancreatic cancer found no significant associations.

Vitamin D Deficiency and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with incident cardiovascular disease and further clinical and experimental studies may be warranted to determine whether correction of vitamin D deficiency could contribute to the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

Low serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in older persons and the risk of nursing home admission.

Lower serum 25(OH)D concentrations in older persons are associated with a greater risk of future nursing home admission and may be associated with mortality.

A comprehensive review of the evidence for vitamin D and cancer prevention was conducted, concluding that vitamin D may play a protective role in colorectal cancer, but not for prostate cancer, and that the evidence is weak for breast cancer.

Effects of lowering homocysteine levels with B vitamins on cardiovascular disease, cancer, and cause-specific mortality: Meta-analysis of 8 randomized trials involving 37 485 individuals.

Dietary supplementation with folic acid to lower homocysteine levels had no significant effects within 5 years on cardiovascular events or on overall cancer or mortality in the populations studied.

Vitamin D and calcium: a systematic review of health outcomes.

It was difficult to draw firm conclusions on the basis of the available literature concerning the association of either serum 25(OH)D concentration or calcium intake, or the combination of both nutrients on the different health outcomes.
