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.

Do vegans need vitamin D?

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin, which means our bodies need it to stay healthy. This means that everybody needs vitamin D, whether they follow a vegan diet or not.

 

Since there is very little naturally occurring vitamin D in plant-based foods, it is a good idea to take a supplement such as these vitamin D supplement gummies.

Which vitamin D is vegan?

Vitamin D has two main forms – vitamin D2 and vitamin D3.

 

The main difference between the two is that vitamin D3 can come from both plant and animal sources, whereas vitamin D2 comes from plant-based sources.

What does vitamin D do?

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin, which helps to support our overall health and wellbeing.

 

Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption of calcium and phosphate in the body.

 

Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and normal muscle function. As well as this, it also helps to support the normal function of the immune system.

What is vitamin D?

Vitamin D is also known as the sunshine vitamin. It is an essential vitamin, which helps to keep our bodies healthy and it is produced by the body when the skin is directly exposed to sunlight.

 

Unlike other vitamins, it occurs naturally in just a few foods and it is also added to other foods.

How do you get vitamin D on a vegan diet?

It can be a challenge to get sufficient vitamin D on a vegan diet, since most of the natural dietary sources of vitamin D are products which are derived from animals, such as egg yolks, liver, red meat and oily fish.

 

One of the only natural, plant-based source of vitamin D is mushrooms.

 

There are some other vegan options, as vitamin D is often added to fortified foods such as vegan alternatives to milk and breakfast cereals.

 

The other way to get vitamin D is through exposure to natural sunlight. When ultraviolet B rays from the sun hit receptors in the skin, the body starts to produce vitamin D.

 

But if you spend a lot of time inside or you do not expose your skin to sunlight when you are outside, then you might not get enough of this vital vitamin.

 

If you are not getting enough vitamin D through exposure to sunlight or through your diet, then taking a supplement, such these vegan vitamin D chewable gummies, is a good way of keeping your vitamin D levels topped up.
