I know I’ve said a lot about vitamins before but I really do feel like I need to say something about this one again.
Please do take vitamin D3 as it helps your body in so many ways and vitamin D makes it the best-selling supplement sold during the long and gloomy winter months.
- Vitamin D regulates the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles strong.
- A lack of vitamin D can cause rickets in children, and lead to osteomalacia, which causes bone tenderness, in adults.
- An all year round supplement is recommended for those who are housebound or who do not get enough Vitamin D from the sun.
- In winter, it can be difficult to rely only on your diet where it can be found in oily fish, red meat, liver and egg yolks.
Not only does it help your bones – my knees need help believe me! – but it makes you feel happy or at lest helps you get through the winter months which most people find very depressing indeed.
So taking D3 will help you bring the sunshine in and brighten up your life!
