Consider taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day to keep your bones and muscles healthy. This is because you may not be getting enough vitamin D from sunlight if you’re indoors most of the day. There have been some news reports about vitamin D reducing the risk of coronavirus. However, there is currently not enough evidence to support this. Please do not buy more vitamin D than you need.
Who should take vitamin D supplements?
Some groups of the population are at greater risk of not getting enough vitamin D.
The Department of Health recommends that the following people should take daily vitamin D supplements to make sure they get enough:
- All babies from birth to 1 year old (including breastfed babies and formula-fed babies who have less than 500ml a day of infant formula)
- All children aged 1 to 4 years old, including adults
- People who aren’t often exposed to sunlight
Why should we take vitamin D supplements?
Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. 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.
Adults: Two or three SunVit-D3 Calcium Tablets to be chewed daily, ideally to be taken in the morning, midday and evening with your meals.
Children: Two SunVit-D3 Calcium Tablets to be chewed daily, ideally to be taken in the morning and evening with their meals.
Due to calcium carbonate’s naturally chalky texture, we would advise taking the chewable tablet with water.
Each chewable tablet contains pure Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 200IU (5μg, 100% of NRV) and 1250mg Calcium Carbonate (equivalent to 500mg calcium, 63% of NRV).
