Vitamin D is crucially important to our health. It contributes to the absorption of calcium therefore plays a key role in the health of our bones and teeth. It supports normal muscle function and helps the immune system to perform.
Vitamin D supplements recommended by Public Health England during the winter
Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin because our skin synthesises it when it is exposed to sunshine. Our Vitamin D Effervescent tablets contain vitamin D3, which is the form of vitamin D produced naturally in the body in response to sunlight.
In the UK, the sun isn't strong enough for us to make vitamin D between the months of October and March, the impact of this is added to by our increasingly 'indoor' lifestyles. Good food sources of vitamin D include oily fish, egg yolks, and beef liver, if you are not eating enough of these foods then it might be difficult to get enough vitamin D through diet alone.
Public Health England recommends that everyone should consider taking a vitamin D supplement in winter and that those people who have an increased risk of low levels should supplement all year round.
