Vitamin D Deficiency
A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults. Deficiencies have also been linked to cancers, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic muscle pain, bone loss and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis. “It is important to take vitamin D as you may have been indoors more than usual this year”. NHS.co.uk
You should take vitamin D each day between October and early March to keep your bones and muscles healthy.

Good sources of vitamin D
From about late March/early April to the end of September, most people should be able to get all the vitamin D they need from sunlight. Our bodies create vitamin D from direct sunlight on the skin when outdoors.
However, between October and early March, on average, we do not get enough vitamin D from sunlight.
Alongside supplement form, you can also get vitamin D from sunlight, eggs, cod liver oil, mackerel, salmon, tuna and mushrooms.
