What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, that the body makes in the skin, in response to sunshine on the skin. Vitamin D is essential for the development and maintenance of healthy bones, as it is required for the absorption of calcium in the diet.
Low levels of vitamin D are associated with many bone problems, including Rickets, and Osteomalacia and may also be associated with many other medical conditions, including a reduced immune response to seasonal respiratory diseases including Covid-19.
Between October and early March in the UK, we do not make enough vitamin D from sunlight alone, and the UK government advice is that everyone in the UK, should consider taking a daily vitamin D supplement, during the autumn and winter.
