Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin is something that many of us are lacking. We might not realise because the symptoms can be similar to many other problems, but did you know it’s very difficult to get all of your vitamin D requirements from diet alone? Boosting the amount of sunshine that reaches our skin is another way of upping our VitaminD supply but in the darker colder months, this becomes increasingly difficult. Experts say it is almost impossible for people living in the UK to get all of the Vitamin D they need from natural sources alone and that supplements are recommended.
There are many supplements available in chemists and supermarkets and Fultium have sent me their Daily D3 for kids which has a handy dropper to make it easy to give. You can dop it into your child’s food or drink to help give them a drama free boost.
A lack of Vitamin D can be tied to many problems. it is advised to take 10 mcg a day, especially in winter months but this is particularly important if you are housebound, pregnant, and or breastfeeding.
Most people know that a lack of Vitamin D can cause problems such as rickets which causes the bones to become soft and weak but it can also be linked to
- A weaker immune system
- Tiredness and fatigue
- Hair loss
- Muscle pain
Correcting it is simple. Taking a multivitamin or a supplement such as Fultium Daily D3 will increase your supply and also help calcium absorption too for healthier teeth and bones.
