By Olenka Quintrell 18 days ago 32462 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.

Vitamin D is one of the only vitamins which we can make ourselves. However, the process of making vitamin D is highly complicated and prone to error. 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!
