Healthy Origins Vitamin D3 5,000 IU is a key nutrient manufactured in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the body from sunlight and only a small amount can be obtained from food. The winter season and many sunblock products inhibit the body’s ability to produce optimal levels of Vitamin D. As a result, Vitamin D3 supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure your body receives an adequate supply.
Everyone should consider taking vitamin D supplements in autumn and winter, public health advice for the UK recommends.
A report by a committee of independent nutrition experts has recommended that everyone in the UK should take vitamin D supplements, instead of just some groups of the population. Why?
What is the new guidance?
Vitamin D experts now say:
Everyone over the age of four should take 10 micrograms of vitamin D every day, particularly from October to March
Pregnant and breastfeeding women and at-risk groups (such as people from ethnic minority groups with dark skin, elderly people in care homes and those who wear clothing that cover most the skin) should take 10 micrograms of vitamin D per day all year round
Children between the age of one and four should take 10 micrograms of vitamin D supplements all year round
All babies from birth up to one year of age should take 8.5 to 10 micrograms of vitamin D per day (particularly those being breastfed)
This new advice applies to England and Wales.
Health officials in Scotland and Northern Ireland say they have updated their guidance in line with the new recommendations, but only for people aged over six months.
