The sunshine vitamin
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin, which the body needs to stay healthy. The body cannot produce this vitamin on its own and you therefore need to get vitamin D each day.
Unlike most of the other vitamins, the main natural source of vitamin D is not from food at all - it is actually from direct exposure to sunlight. This is why vitamin D is sometimes known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’.
When you are outside, ultraviolet B (UVB) rays hit receptors located in the skin cells and this triggers a chemical reaction which then produces vitamin D. Vitamin D can only be produced when your skin is directly exposed to sunlight.
However, it can be difficult to get all the vitamin D that our bodies need through the sunlight alone, especially during the darker, winter months or if you do not get to spend as much time as you would like outside.
It is also thought that wearing sun cream stops the direct exposure of sunlight to the skin.
Because of this, the NHS recommends that everyone in the UK should take a vitamin D supplement during the winter months.
Holland & Barrett Vit D Gummy 25UG is a great option for an easy-to-take, daily supplement.
Food sources of vitamin D
Although the best source of vitamin D is via direct sunlight, there are some foods which contain vitamin D.
It can be a challenge to get sufficient amounts of vitamin D through your diet alone, since there are only a few foods which are natural sources of it.
The best natural sources of vitamin D include oily fish, such as salmon, liver, red meat and egg yolks.
Of course, these foods are not suitable for anyone following a vegan diet.
One of the few natural vegan sources of vitamin D is mushrooms. Vitamin D is often also added to fortified foods, such as plant-based milk alternatives and breakfast cereals.
It is unlikely that you will be able to get all of your recommended daily intake of vitamin D through your diet alone, especially if you are vegan. You can therefore keep your levels topped up with these vitamin D vegan gummies.
