VITAMIN D - Gymophobics


Vitamin D helps to regulate our calcium and phosphate which keeps bones, teeth and muscles healthy but while the body produces Vitamin D naturally from sunlight and certain foods, it is one of the most difficult nutrients to get in adequate amounts.

The NHS advises that we take supplements this winter while we spend more time indoors following a number of studies that suggest that Vitamin D could have a positive impact for people with Covid 19.

A study by the Children’s Research Institute in Seattle suggests that pregnant women who get more Vitamin D have brighter offspring. The vitamin which passes from mother to baby in the womb, is known to have many important functions including healthy brain development.
