Vitamin D Deficiency: The Other Pandemic

As Malaysia and many other countries struggle to control the Covid-19 pandemic, another health pandemic has gone under the radar: that of Vitamin D deficiency. 

A scientific paper published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition states, “Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a pandemic.” What is a pandemic? The World Health Organization defines pandemic as a ““an epidemic occurring worldwide, or over a very wide area, crossing international boundaries and usually affecting a large number of people.” 

This means that the Vitamin D deficiency pandemic has nothing to do with bacterias or viruses. Instead, it is simply a health problem that exists in all corners of the globe, affecting large populations of people. 

The Prevalence Of Vitamin D Deficiency 

Why is Vitamin D deficiency so prevalent worldwide? Well, a crucial reason provided by the study states that “Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D, and foods that are fortified with vitamin D are often inadequate to satisfy either a child’s or an adult’s vitamin D requirement.” 

Nowadays, to combat Vitamin D deficiency, foods like milk are fortified with Vitamin D, meaning that they have additional Vitamin D added into the formulation. 

The other way that we can get enough Vitamin D is through sunlight exposure. However, many people are simply unaware of this connection, and are thus spending far too much time indoors. The study found that “the lack of appreciation that sun exposure in moderation is the major source of vitamin D for most humans.” 

Diseases Associated With Vitamin D Deficiency 

Vitamin D is crucial for bone and muscle health, as well as that of healthy immune function. This means that Vitamin D deficiency may cause: 


  1. Increased risk of respiratory infections
  2. Increased risk of autoimmune diseases 
  3. Increased risk of cancers

When A Cream Isn’t Just A Cream

Does your child suffer from an excessive swelling after a mosquito bite, or skin redness and itchiness after certain activities? All these indicate that your child may have sensitive skin that makes your child prone to eczema. 

The most common default prescription is a steroid-based cream. Steroid-based creams are popular because they can reduce the inflammation of the skin almost immediately. 

However, did you know that steroidal creams also come with negative side-effects? It is well-documented that the overuse of steroid-based creams may result in the thinning or darkening of the skin

To prevent these side-effects, most doctors advise parents to use moisturizing creams to moisturize the affected areas and to refrain from scratching. 

However, could there be a more effective solution? 

At BaBydoc, we strongly believe that your child deserves the best. We go through the latest science to craft high-quality products that produce powerful, positive results. 

Let’s take a look at an ingredient called BioFense and what it does to the skin. 

BioFense – The BaBydoc Difference 

In caring for young patients, especially those with sensitive skin, we at BaBydoc want to create a product that can be used by all skin types. 

In BioFense, we have discovered a scientifically-proven ingredient that is found to improve almost all parameters for skin enhancement. Here is what clinical studies have told us. 

1. BioFense reduces acne lesions and erythema (skin redness) 

The image below shows the effectiveness of BioFense in reducing the skin damage caused by acne and erythema (redness of the skin). 

2. BioFense increases skin barrier strength 

The diagram below shows the performance of BioFense in increasing the skin barrier strength over a testing period of 2 months. By increasing your child’s skin barrier, you are protecting your child’s skin from irritants and bacteria, ensuring that it remains soft and supple. 

3. BioFense displays anti-inflammatory properties

This diagram below shows that an increase in the concentrations of BioFense increases the skin’s ability to inhibit cell adhesion. This process then results in an overall reduction in the skin’s anti-inflammatory response, thus reducing skin redness and swelling. 


Due to the research on BioFense carried out by the Barnett Products Corporation, we have scientific evidence that BioFense: 

  1. Reduces skin damage caused by acne and erythema (skin redness).
  2. Increases skin barrier strength. 
  3. Displays anti-inflammatory response. 

A Final Word 

We have included BioFense in two of our popular BaBydoc products: Our BaBydoc Intensive Cream and our BaBydoc Bio Cream. Both of these products are crafted with you and your child in mind so that they can have smooth and supple skin, day in and day out. Purchase our products today and feel the difference yourself! 

Remember, at BaBydoc, your child deserves the best.

Did You Know These 4 Important Facts About Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is known as the “Sunshine Vitamin” because your body can produce it when you are exposed to sunlight. As long as you spend enough time in the sun, voila! – your body will have sufficient Vitamin D.


However, studies have shown that a high percentage of children in Malaysia do not have enough Vitamin D. This is likely due to children not getting enough exposure to sunlight or not eating enough food that is rich in Vitamin D. This is worrying because Vitamin D is vital for your child’s healthy growth and development. 


To ensure that your child receives enough Vitamin D, consider taking VITAUX D3 Plus Drops. This supplement is rich in Vitamin D and contains Vitamin E as well.


Here are some important facts that you must know about Vitamin D:


Vitamin D Promotes Brown Growth

Vitamin D allows calcium and phosphate to be readily absorbed in your gut, ensuring that these nutrients are present at healthy levels in your body. Calcium and phosphate are also vital for healthy bone growth and maintenance. This prevents problems like rickets in children and osteoporosis in the elderly.


Vitamin D Boosts Your Immune System

Vitamin D has properties that boost your immune function. Deficiency in Vitamin D has been linked to increased autoimmunity (when your body’s immune system mistakenly attacks itself) and increased susceptibility to infection. This means that having sufficient Vitamin D will help your body fight against infection and disease. 


Vitamin D Helps Prevent ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a medical condition that affects the ability of a child to hold attention and sit still. Studies have shown that children with ADHD have significantly lower Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is known to alleviate ADHD symptoms, helping children to concentrate and pay attention.


Vitamin D Reduces Depression

Vitamin D plays an important role in helping you to maintain your mental well-being. Research has shown that Vitamin D can promote good mood and prevent depression. Studies have shown that patients with depression show significant signs of improvement after taking Vitamin D supplements.



Did you know about these 4 interesting facts about Vitamin D? Now that you do, ensure that you get enough Vitamin D by having adequate exposure to sunlight every day or eating foods that are rich in Vitamin D, such as fish and egg yolk. To ensure that your child has adequate Vitamin D, consider giving your child VITAUX D3 Plus Drops today!
