Research suggests that everyone over the age of one should have a daily intake of atleast 10ug of vitamin D per day to protect bone and muscle health. Vitamin D3 is produced in our bodies underneath our skin as a reaction to sunlight exposure. Vitamin D helps to contribute to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, muscle function and the immune system, helping your body fight off infection. Additionally, Vitamin D supports the absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus thus helps in maintaining normal blood calcium levels.

Vitamin D3 is its biologically active form and is more important for our health.
That is because the body absorbs it better. It also helps us maintain our vitamin D levels throughout the winter months.
Your body produces vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight. That is why it is also known as the sunshine vitamin.
When the body gets vitamin D, it becomes a hormone known as activated vitamin D or, less commonly, calcitriol.
Our body is capable of making approximately 90% of the vitamin D we need, but we require enough UV light to do so.
You can also find vitamin D in a range of foods, including wild mushrooms, milk, and cereals.
Because it is difficult for us to get enough vitamin D in the winter months, government guidelines recommend taking a regular D3 supplement.
