Vitamin D is 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.
The NHS website states: “Since it’s difficult for people to get enough vitamin D from food alone, everyone (including pregnant and breastfeeding women) should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D during the autumn and winter.” It also recommends it for people at risk of vitamin D deficiency.
To see more details on the benefits of vitamin D, and dosages for different ages and genders, visit the NHS website.

Taking too much vitamin D can be harmful. We recommend that you check with a health professional that a vitamin D supplement is suitable for your age, health condition and/or other medications.
