Coronavirus: PHE recommends taking vitamin D
Public Health England has recommended the use of vitamin D supplements during coronavirus lockdown because people are spending more time indoors and have less exposure to sunlight as a result.
Vitamin D is created by the body in response to direct sunlight on the skin, and it is thought that people may not be producing enough of it because of isolation measures.
Health experts have now advised people to take 10 micrograms of the vitamin a day to ensure healthy bones and muscles.
“This is because you may not be getting enough vitamin D from sunlight if you’re indoors most of the day,” Public Health England said.
Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium and phosphate, which keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
