Simple ways to get your Vitamin D fix during these colder seasons

Updated: Sep 22, 2020


With this year proving to be somewhat uncertain, many of us have opted for sunbathing in our back garden as opposed to on a sandy beach abroad this summer. Either way, you could have done a world of good for getting your fix of Vitamin D to improve your bone health.


Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium to strengthen your muscles and bones, and interestingly it has been suggested that deficiency affects up to 13% of the world's population.

This can lead to a reduction in your bone mineral density causing your bones more weak and fragile, a condition known as osteoporosis, and in severe cases Rickets in children/ Osteomalacia in adults.


Approximately 90% of our Vitamin D source comes from sunlight, with only 10% of our diet. With Autumn fast approaching, you may be wondering what you can do to get your Vitamin D fix during these colder months.


A known recommendation is to take an over the counter supplement as well as altering your diet to include more Vitamin D-rich foods such as:


- Oily fish

- Red meat

- Egg yolks

- Mushrooms


Wondering if you may need to boost your Vitamin D levels? consult your GP to schedule a check up!
