Sunshine Vitamin D
What Is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is produced in our skin when we are exposed to sunlight. It helps our bodies to absorb calcium and phosphorous for healthy bones. It is also needed to support the immune system.
There Are Two Types Of Vitamin D:
- D2: is the plant-derived form 1 which is provided by some supplements and found in very small amounts in some mushrooms2
- D3: is the type formed by sunlight and found in some food sources, and is thought to be the preferred form as it lasts longer in the body1
Sources Of Vitamin D
Sunlight is the main source of vitamin D. However not all of us get enough vitamin D from sunlight on our skin when we are outside, particularly during the winter months, as in the UK between October and early March, we don’t get any vitamin D from sunlight.
