The importance of Vitamin D supplementation during the winter months

by Kate McNeil October 31, 2014

With the darker colder months with us, it’s important for individuals, whether you’re a busy parent, elderly or an athlete, to stay healthy through the winter months ahead.

Vitamin D is often referred to as the ‘sunshine’ vitamin, which is an essential ingredient to maintain our health and wellbeing. It’s not always easy to get your recommended daily allowance even through the British summer. With the UK’s short days and limited sun through the winter, supplementing on quality Vitamin D is essential. A low Vitamin D count can lead to a suppressed immune function, depression, mood imbalances and weight gain to name a few. Vitamin D is an essential ingredient in the diet to absorb calcium, which is essential for bone growth.

In a study conducted by Dana Ogan and Kelly Prtichett, they looked into ‘Vitamin D and the Athlete: Risks, Recommendations and Benefits’.

These vital functions are essential for all individuals, especially the elite and recreational athlete.”
