According to my GP, doctors are now realising the importance of testing women for Vitamin D deficiency, something that was relatively unheard of a few years ago. You see, despite us absorbing this key nutrient naturally from the sun, we can only get a small percentage of our actual needs from sunshine. Living in the UK, this makes it all the more important to add a supplement to our diet.
Vitamin D aids the immune system, tiredness, joint and back pain, depression, the healing of wounds, bone density, hair loss and muscular pain.
Since receiving results that I was severely deficient in the magic 'D', I've been taking one tablet per day for the last six months & find that my energy levels have increased, as well as my joint pain being greatly reduced.
Holland & Barratt do a great deal of 250 Vitamin D tablets for £18.49, with the second purchase for just 1p. That's over a year's supply for under £20, result!
