    Ensuring micronutrient adequacy for vulnerable groups around the world: the role of food supplements
    October 2011

    The importance of appropriate nutrition interventions to improve child health and development and good nutrition in utero has far-reaching implications for a nation’s economic development and the chance for people to prosper. Governments and health professionals already recognise the need for the use of food supplements in certain targeted population groups. However, significant proportions of the general population are failing to achieve adequate intakes of several micronutrients. A key objective of this IADSA publication is to promote better awareness of the potential role of food supplements in supporting a varied and balanced diet and to help improve the nutritional status of populations around the world.

    The Updated Risk Assessment of Vitamin D
    October 2009

    The evolution of the human dataset relevant to vitamin D safety has been as rapid as that for efficacy. In the past decade, a large number of well-designed human clinical trials have been published involving relatively high doses of vitamin D in a range of populations and subgroups. These data, combined with a general scientific consensus of serum 25(OH)D levels as the marker for vitamin D status, have drastically informed our knowledge regarding the safety of vitamin D. Presented in this publication is an updated risk assessment of vitamin D based on the most recently published human clinical trials.
