After sunny summer holidays abroad and uncharacteristically hot weather in the UK, we are able to boost our vitamin D levels by simply being outside enjoying the sun’s rays. However during darker days and for those who spend most of their time indoors, it has never been more important to keep our vitamin D levels topped up and help support our immune system.
Vitamin D is an essential supplement, especially as few foods contain it naturally. The Department of Health now recognises the risk of a vitamin D deficiency amongst the UK population, stating: “We are aware that some of the UK population may be at risk of vitamin D deficiency. This is a concern, particularly for at-risk groups, such as pregnant women, infants and young children.”
Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system and muscles. It is needed for the utilisation of calcium in the body and helps maintain bones and teeth.
