We do not always see the sun as much as we would like in the UK, which can make it a challenge to get the required amounts of vitamin D we need to thrive.
However, we have the perfect solution, with this high strength formula, vegan vitamin D supplement.
Holland & Barrett Vegan Vit D 75UG provides immune support, as well as support for bones and muscles.
Suitable for both vegans and vegetarians, this vitamin D dietary supplement uses a plant-based formula.
Although there are lots of health benefits to being a vegan, following a vegan lifestyle can mean that you risk missing out on some essential vitamins, so supplements such as this vitamin D, can be a good addition to your daily routine.
Vegan vitamin D sources
There are limited natural food sources of vitamin D and even less of these are vegan sources of vitamin D.
Some of the best sources of vitamin D include oily fish, such as salmon, liver, red meat and egg yolks. However, all of these are unsuitable for anyone following a vegan diet.
In fact, there are not many plant sources of vitamin D at all. One of the very few natural vegan food sources of vitamin D is mushrooms.
Vitamin D is also added to fortified foods, such as plant-based milk alternatives and breakfast cereals.
If you do not feel like you are getting enough vitamin D through your diet, then you might wish to add more to your daily routine, with Holland & Barrett Vit D 75UG.
How do we get vitamin D?
Rather than via our diets, most of the vitamin D our bodies get comes through the direct exposure of our skin to sunlight. Although the body does not produce vitamin D on its own, it can produce it with the help of direct exposure to sunlight.
The UVB rays in the sun hit receptors in the skin cells and this triggers a chemical reaction, which produces vitamin D.
It can be difficult to get all the vitamin D that your body needs through sunlight, especially during the winter months or if you spend a lot of time inside.
The NHS therefore recommends that everyone should take a vitamin D supplement, during the winter months, in the UK.
Which is where Holland & Barrett Vegan Vit D 75UG comes in. This daily food supplement helps to keep your vitamin D levels topped up.
