Vitamin D: Going outside for as little as ten minutes 'once or twice a day' may be enough

1 min read


You can take vitamin D supplements as tablets, liquid or a spray, and they can be bought in a pharmacy.

Dietary vitamin D is available in foods such as oily fish, cod liver oil, red meat, fortified cereals, fortified spreads and egg yolks.

The NHS says taking too many vitamin D supplements over a long period of time can cause too much calcium to build up in the body which can weaken the bones and damage the kidneys and the heart.

If you exceed the upper limit it can lead to feelings of nausea. Other signs you have taken too much include vomiting, muscle weakness, and loss of appetite.
