How To Get Enough Vitamin D In Autumn And Winter

With darkness progressively descending upon us as the clocks go back, making sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D in winter becomes more necessary. A recent study found that 19% of British adults have low levels of Vitamin D, and these low levels could only get worse during the autumn and winter months.

Studies have shown that we need around 10 minutes of sunshine a day to get your Vitamin D fix, but of course, everyone is different, and your levels will not only depend on the seasons but also on whether you have an outdoor job or work in an office. Getting enough vitamin D in winter will depend on how much more you stay indoors as opposed to spending time outdoors walking the dog each day for example. Even how much your clothing covers your skin and different skin pigmentations can inhibit or aid Vitamin D levels.

How Much Vitamin D To Take In Winter

Again, this varies from person to person, but the NHS recommends that everyone should get 10 micrograms of vitamin D each day. It’s important for our bodies to get enough Vitamin D daily in winter to ensure we stay strong and sharp throughout the years. Vitamin D also helps us absorb calcium which is vital in forming and maintaining strong bones, improving brain development and function and reducing inflammation.

How To Get Vitamin D In Winter

The body is designed to intake vitamin D from sunshine on skin, but through the darker months of autumn and winter, this is much harder to achieve, especially in the UK. Whilst you can also absorb Vitamin D through certain foods like oily fish, tofu, eggs and cheese which is always advisable, one of the other best ways to increase your levels is through vitamin D winter supplements like our SunVit-D3 400IU Tablets or SunVit-D3 400IU Capsules.

If you’re not sure whether this is enough for you, you can take a home vitamin D blood test kit, or visit your GP for more advice.
