It is easy to feel the benefits of vitamin D when you are standing out in the sunshine. While this Solgar vitamin D supplement is not quite a holiday on the Costas, it could have a similar effect.
Made with naturally sourced vitamin D3 with no added sugar, salt or starch, these vegan and vegetarian appropriate vitamin D capsules contain 1000IU of the sunshine vitamin, helping to support healthy bones and muscle function and aiding normal function of your immune system.
Who will benefit from a vitamin D3 supplement?
For much of the year, most of us will get all the vit D that we require from simply enjoying the great outdoors because our body is able to make what it needs from sunshine.
However, from autumn and through to late March, when days are shorter and darker in the northern hemisphere, a lot of us will struggle to get all the vitamin D we need.
In fact, many national governments and healthcare providers, including the NHS, recommend that everyone should take a vitamin D supplement during this time.
Some of us will even need a year-round supply of vitamin D from a source like Solgar vitamin D3 tablets.
People with darker skin, those living in cities where sunlight might be blocked by high rise buildings, the housebound and people who work inside with limited access to sunlight for most of the day can all be at risk of a vitamin D deficiency.
Even if you are ultra-vigilant about sunscreen – as you should be - you may need an extra pop of vitamin D in your life.
Why vitamin D3?
Vitamin D occurs in two forms; vitamin D2, or ergocalciferol, and vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol.
While D2 is commonly found in vegetables and yeasts, D3 is present in animal-based foods, particularly oily fish and eggs.
Because D3 appears to be almost twice as effective at raising levels of vitamin D in the body, it tends to be the more commonly selected supplement.
How can vitamin D tablets help me?
Vitamin D is vital to good bone health, working alongside calcium to ensure our bones, muscles and even teeth are strong and stand the test of time.
When we do not have enough vitamin D in our bodies, calcium can’t do its good work, no matter how many pints of milk we chug. And we open ourselves up to the risk of bone fractures.
Vitamin D is known to support our immune system, with low levels of this vital vitamin often showing itself as an increased susceptibility to becoming ill.
