Vitamin D: a (sun) shining example of how important vitamins are for your body!
From supporting strong and healthy bones to maintaining your immune system, vitamin D is very important for a huge number of functions in the body. When the darker nights arrive, it becomes all the more important as we usually make our vitamin D using sunshine.
Make sure you keep your vitamin D levels topped up with Holland & Barrett Vitamin D Supplements. Whether you prefer to take Vitamin D Tablets, Vitamin D Chewy Gummies, or use a Vitamin D Spray– we have you covered!
Vitamin D important for the elderly
As we get older, our need for Vitamin D increases. This is partly because of health risks associated with ageing. It is also due to our body’s changing ability to produce and absorb vitamins and minerals.
Check out our guide to vitamin D for people aged over 65 to find out more about this topic.
Vitamin D for babies and children
It’s not just us grown-ups that need vitamin D, our little ones could do with some of the sunshine vitamin too! The government recommends of a supplement of at least 10µg of vitamin D for children over the age of 1 and 8.5-10µg for babies under 1 year old. This helps them with everything from growing and maintaining healthy bones, teeth and muscles, to keeping their natural immune system functioning. But how? Choose child-friendly chewy gummies or odour- and flavour-less drops for babies and children to make supplementing their vitamin D a little easier.
