Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an important component to how our bodies function.
October is the 1st month that our bodies cannot produce enough levels of Vitamin D from sun exposure in the UK.

WHY VITAMIN D IS IMPORTANT

Vitamin D is essential in our bodies for:

  • Healthy teeth and bones
  • Efficient immune system
  • Reducing blood pressure levels
  • A happy YOU!

FACT:

Did you know Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin? it is a hormone that influences nearly 3000 different genes in your body – from your brain to your bones!

DID YOU KNOW...?

In the UK Between the months of October – March, you cannot get enough Vitamin D from the sun. This is because the sunlight does not contain enough UVB radiation for our skin to be able to make Vitamin D.

Our bodies rely on other ways of getting Vitamin D – food, supplements and artificial sun light like sunbeds. The UV rays from our sunbeds are equivalent to the Mediterranean midday summer sun and just 2-3 times sessions per week keeps your Vitamin D levels tip top!

FACT:

Vitamin D made in your skin last longer in your body than Vitamin D made from diet or supplements!
