Why do experts recommend vitamin D?

| |

Public health experts recommend people to take vitamin D supplements daily in spring and summer because the coronavirus block is restricted.

Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium – important for maintaining healthy bones and teeth.

Usually, the BBC explains, most people get enough vitamin D when they spend time outdoors because our skin creates it when it is exposed to the sun.

Therefore, Public Health England previously suggested that everyone should consider taking a supplement only during the fall and winter months when the sunshine is limited.

However, it has now changed its advice because it fears that blocking the population will deprive it of the most important nutrient.

The Telegraph says that a lack of vitamin D can lead to a number of diseases, including rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, which cause bones to become soft, weakened, and in some cases deformed.

Sara Stanner of the British Nutrition Foundation said: “Unfortunately, given the ongoing effects of the coronavirus, many of us are limited in the amount of time we can spend outdoors.

“Correct compliance with government regulations and staying at home are extremely important. Although many of us have limited access to sunlight, we need to take a little more care to keep our vitamin D levels healthy.”

The Daily Express says supplements are proposed “despite the wall-to-wall sunshine that has fallen in many parts of the country this week” because “not everyone is lucky enough to have a garden to enjoy “.

The vitamin is available in supermarkets and pharmacies, either as a single supplement or as part of a multivitamin tablet.

Although Spanish and French researchers are conducting clinical trials to determine whether vitamin D helps coronavirus patients, there is currently no evidence that it reduces the risk of developing or contracting coronavirus.
