Are you getting enough Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin. Our main source of this essential nutrient is sunlight, and with the days becoming shorter and darker, it can be harder to get our daily dose. It is vital to remember how important this powerful nutrient is to our bodies when winter comes around.

Why is it important?

  • It is essential for maintaining healthy bones and teeth
  • It helps the body assimilate calcium from the diet
  • It contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • It helps avoid pain, muscle weakness and a number of other health issues.

So how can we make sure that we’re getting enough Vitamin D as the days start to shorten?

Winter Sunlight

Go out for walks, enjoy the fresh air and cash in on the little bits of sunshine we get. It’s a great cheap form of exercise and it will improve your mood and mindset. And for an extra bonus, if you take different walking routes, you will expose your skin to new contacts with new viruses, bacteria etc and thereby help with improving skin immunity.

Sadly in the UK, sunlight does not contain enough UVB radiation in winter (October to early March) for our skin to be able to make Vitamin D. During these months we rely on getting our Vitamin D from food sources and supplements.
