The Importance of Vitamin D.

We were recently sent a lovely bundle of goodies alongside some very important Fultium Daily D3, a very important vitamin supplement containing vitamin D, or as commonly known by people as the 'sunshine vitamin'. We were also sent some very interesting facts about how our bodies can and cannot absorb vitamin D, which made for some very interesting reading indeed…

Vitamin D is essential for bone production, strength and repair and without it there's a higher risk of bone fractures and Rickets. Rickets is on the rise in the UK due to a lack of Vitamin D, so it's important to know what we can do to help our children absorb more of this feel good vitamin.

We all presume that if we get a bit of sunshine we'll be able to absorb vitamin D, but in reality it's a lot harder for our bodies to absorb than we think. Firstly, there's the issue of being outside for long enough to absorb it, and in a world of office workers, long school days and generally people hibernating during the winter months, it's just not as simple as it sounds. 

It's also very interesting to discover that fair skin absorbs vitamin D more quickly than darker skin, but fair skinned folk may also avoid the sunlight which counteracts this. You can also get small amounts of vitamin D from foods such as oily fish, red meat, egg yolks and other foods, but the quantities to gain enough vitamin D from food alone are pretty unachievable, such as 6 boiled eggs or 10 rump steaks per day!

There are also so many factors that can prevent the absorption of vitamin D such as lack of outdoor space and time, polluted air and sunscreen. There's even research that points to a connection between lack of vitamin D and a weakened immune system as well as daytime sleepiness…

This is where Fultium Daily D3 can help because it offers the suggested daily amount of vitamin D, helping to maintain healthy bones, teeth and muscles as well as counteract all the issues preventing the absorption the feel good vitamin.

You can get packs of 30 (£3.99), 60 (£7.49), 90 (£10.99) or 15ml drops (£7.99) to be taken daily.

Disclosure: I received a goodie box in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.
