THE ISSUE

Vitamin D is mainly produced in the skin when it is exposed to the ultraviolet (UV) B rays of the sun. But despite Singapore's reputation as a "sunny island", many here are deficient in this vitamin. According to a 2017* study, almost 8 out of 10 Singaporeans suffer from inadequate Vitamin D levels, and most may not even be aware of the risks. Further research** into Vitamin D deficiency has recently suggested that this condition may be associated with a higher risk of catching COVID-19.

OPTIMAL VITAMIN D LEVELS 

According to the Endocrine Society, the optimal Vitamin D levels a person should have are between 75 nmol/L to 200 nmol/L. Zesttee's Vitamin D home test kit measures 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D, which is the best way to monitor vitamin D levels, in a person's blood sample.

If your blood levels are above 30 ng/ml this translates to your Vitamin D levels being above 75 nmol/L, which means your levels are optimal.
