Why is Vitamin D important?
Vitamin D helps your gut absorb calcium, which is essential for strong bones and teeth. In your blood, vitamin D is needed for the absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus, which work together to maintain bone health. But vitamin D isn’t just about bones, it’s also important for muscle function, cognitive function and immune health.
Where can I get Vitamin D from?
Often referred to as the “Sunshine Vitamin”, we get Vitamin D through Sunlight. It is also found in some foods such as oily fish, eggs and mushrooms.
Are Vitamin D supplements recommended?
With as little as 15 minutes of sun exposure per day and a diet rich in Vitamin D foods, you don’t need to supplement. However, in the winter months especially, you may not be exposed to the same level of sunlight and therefore a Vitamin D supplement may be recommended.
