Study Finds One In Three Nestlé Employees In Sydney Lacks Vitamin D

June 22, 2011: 09:33 PM EST
One in three Australian office workers is lacking in vitamin D during the summer, according to a joint study by Nestlé and the University of Sydney. Results showed that 42% of the 104 male and female employees at the company's Australian headquarters had record low levels of the essential micronutrient by the end of winter. The findings alarmed the researchers, because vitamin D deficiency makes people more likely to suffer from reproductive health problems, muscle function disorders, and osteoporosis.  Nestle used the results to showcase its vitamin D fortified Sustagen and Nestlé Malted Milk Powder.
