You may have seen or heard Vitamin D mentioned in many media titles and news programmes. But what is all the fuss about?
At this current time, we are in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic and are being advised to stay at home meaning we could be missing out on the sunshine vitamin. Public Health England is recommending people take a daily Vitamin D supplement whilst we are currently in lockdown.
Sara Stanner of the British Nutrition Foundation said:
“Unfortunately, as the effects of coronavirus continue, many of us are limited in the time we can spend outdoors. Correctly abiding by government rules and staying at home is immensely important and, while many of us have limited access to sunlight, this means we need to take a little extra care to keep our vitamin D levels healthy.”

Why do we need Vitamin D, you might ask? It is important for the maintenance of normal bones, teeth & muscle function as well as supporting your immune system – which is even more important at the moment.
