In fact, so powerful are the known effects of vitamin D, that many national governments and health providers now recommend a vitamin D supplement for the entire population.
Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin
Produced in your skin as a natural reaction to sunlight, vitamin D is generally found in adequate levels in most people during the summer months.
However when the days draw in, most of us struggle to produce enough vitamin D and in fact, for some people - including the over 65s, pregnant and breastfeeding women, those with darker skin and people living in high rise cities or with reduced exposure to sunlight - the risk of a year-round deficiency exists.
This vitamin D supplement, containing D3, also known as cholecalciferol, rather than the less effective D2, or ergocalciferol, helps to reduce the risk of a vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient. Vitamin D is found naturally within a few foods and is often added to others. It can also be taken as a dietary supplement.
Vitamin D is produced when ultraviolet rays from the sun directly hit the skin and start off the process of vitamin D synthesis.
Vitamin D helps to support a number of processes in the body. It supports the normal function of the immune system, normal cell division and normal muscle function.
As well as this, vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
The NHS recommends that children from age one and upwards, as well as adults, need 10 micrograms of vitamin D per day.

Vitamin D can only be found in a small number of foods.
It is found naturally within oily fish such as salmon, sardines and mackerel as well as in red meat, liver and egg yolks.
It is also added to fortified foods such as fat spreads and breakfast cereals.
During the spring and summer months, you should be able to get sufficient levels of vitamin D through direct exposure to sunlight (so by being outdoors and not just through a window, for example).
Vitamin D is created within the body when you are outdoors, with direct sunlight on your skin.
However, during the winter months, we tend to spend less time outside. Plus there is less sunlight and so many people have difficulty getting all of the vitamin D their bodies need.
Therefore, it is a good idea to take a dietary supplement and the NHS recommends that you should do this.
Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol as it also known, is the natural form of vitamin D that our bodies make from sunlight.
