The UK government has announced that from January 2021 those people within the clinically extremely vulnerable group will be given free daily vitamin D supplementations.
Do you need vitamin D?
Question is, do you need to take supplementation if you are not in this category?
Vitamin D has been shown to help with calcium absorption, bone, muscle and heart health, as well as helping to protect our immunity against respiratory diseases such as COVID.
After a long winter, being stuck indoors, a summer of restricted outdoor activities and with the current health crisis, we would recommend that you get into the habit of taking a good quality vitamin D. The D3 version is the natural version that your body makes from sunlight.
Vitabiotics do an extra strength Ultra Vitamin D, 2000 IU daily at £8.95, or alternatively a Ultra D dummies version at £11.95 if you are not keen on taking tablets – www.vitabiotics.com
Take your supplement with food, ideally in the morning.
Remember you can also include the following foods in your diet to help your vitamin D levels,
Kale, okra, collards
Oily fish like sardines
Stay well folks 🥰
