Vitamin D is often referred to as the sunshine vitamin because our skin magically uses the sun’s rays to make it. We can also get a little of it from our diet. Which is lucky as most of us tend to spend a lot of time indoors and don’t get enough Vitamin D.
It’s estimated that more than 1 billion people worldwide have Vitamin D deficiency. The darker your skin tone the more sunshine you need to make enough Vitamin D for your body, especially if you live somewhere with lots of cloudy days like the UK.
We should all try to make sure we’re getting enough *Vitamin D every day, because it’s essential for our body and our health. Read on to find out why.
