Vitamin D helps to build strong bones and healthy teeth. Commonly known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin following exposure to sunlight.
Ideal for boosting Vitamin D levels during the winter months
Most healthy adults should be able to get enough Vitamin D from being outside in the sun, unfortunately in the UK in the winter there isn’t much opportunity to get a daily dose of sunshine! This strength tablet is the ideal daily dosage for healthy adults who wish to maintain optimal vitamin D levels and is suitable for children over the age of 5 years old and pregnant women.
Recommended by the Food Standards Agency
The Food Standards Agency recommends that if you are pregnant or breastfeeding you should take a 400iu/ 10µg supplement of Vitamin D each day.
Older people should also consider taking 400iu/10µg of Vitamin D each day. Others who may be at risk from Vitamin D deficiency include people who:
• are of Asian origin
• rarely get outdoors
• eat no meat or oily fish
If you aren't getting enough Vitamin D, you might be more at risk of some of the harmful effects of too much Vitamin A.
