Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins we can supplement due to the fact that it is virtually impossible to eat your way out of deficiency. The vast majority of the vitamin D our bodies require is produced by our skins unprotected exposure to the sun.
Our increasingly internal existence and suncare regime has meant that the UK Department of Health has recommended that everyone living in the UK should take a vitamin D supplement from October to April.
