An extensive review carried out by The Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) has suggested that everyone over the age of one needs to consume 10 micrograms (400IU) of vitamin D each day in order to protect bone and muscle health.  Public health officials say, in winter months, people should consider getting this from 10 microgram supplements, if their diet is unlikely to provide it.

Other national guidance recommends that higher risk groups need at last 800IU-2,000IU daily and may need as much as 4,000IU daily.
