Everything You Need To Know About Vitamin D

By Olenka Quintrell 2 months ago 34329 Views

With winter fast approaching, the reduction in daily sunlight exposure, and the higher risk of infection during these cooler months, it is essential that we work towards optimising our vitamin D status.

The bare minimum requirement for adequate vitamin D synthesis is sufficient daily exposure of our skin to sunlight. It therefore comes as no surprise that 25% of the UK population may be deficient, especially when you consider that we live in the northern hemisphere with heavily indoors-based lifestyles, particularly during the year 2020! It is therefore vital that we increase our daily intake of vitamin D over these cooler months to mitigate for our reduced ability to make enough of this nutrient at this time of the year. Read on to find out why you need vitamin D and the best ways to increase your intake of it.
