Often referred to as ‘the sunshine vitamin’, vitamin D is created when sunlight touches the skin. The positive effects of this vitamin on healthy bones have long-been recognised. What’s now becoming apparent is the many other ways it supports good health. Unfortunately, modern lifestyles mean that, for many, levels of this vital nutrient within the body have dramatically dropped and Public Health England now recommend everyone in the UK take a vitamin D supplement in the autumn and winter. Our vitamin D supplements use the D3 form of vitamin D - the body's preferred form.
