You know the score, the sun shines and instantly we all feel better about ourselves. The sun provides many benefits to us including vitamin d which comes from sunlight. 

From March/early April through to September, we typically get sufficient levels of vitamin D however during the autumn and winter periods our body typically struggles to get the required levels of vitamin d.

Vitamin D is required by the body to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate, which keeps bones, teeth and muscles healthy. A lack of vitamin D typically leads to deformities including rickets. 

There are some foods that can provide vitamin D which includes: oily fish, red meat, liver, egg yolks and fortified foods. 

How much vitamin d does an adult need?

Adults typically need 10mcg of vitamin D each day.

FORZA has recently launched a Vitamin D3 supplement - allowing you to boost your daily intake of vitamin D. This one year supply provides a high strength dose of 1,000 IU for just £15.00.
