What is Vitamin D and why do we need it?
Already, 60 – 90% of us are low in vitamin D during the winter. It’s easy to forget how much we need Vitamin D. Known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D can be produced by your skin when exposed to sunlight. With winter upon us we’re going to need all the vitamins we can get.
Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases. 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, which we would all rather avoid. Also, there is a long list of evidence that sufficiency of vitamin D protects against viruses, especially respiratory ones, including the common cold and flu.
Vitamin drinks and supplements are the perfect way to ensure healthy levels of vitamin D with Public Health England recommending a daily dose of 10 micrograms per day. Vit Stix provides 50% of your daily vitamin D making them the perfect supplement to boost vitamin intake and drink more water.
