The Government in the UK has issued public health advice stating that everyone should consider taking vitamin D supplements in Autumn and Winter. The dosage recommended is 10µg/micrograms (400iu) of vitamin D per day. However, we believe its better to take a higher dose and you can safely take up to 75µg/micrograms (3000iu) daily.

Anyone can be deficient in vitamin D, and research suggests that 1 in 6 adults in the UK have low levels of vitamin D in their blood. However, certain groups of people are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency than others. These groups include:
Those who are housebound and/or get little to no sun exposure during the summer
Pregnant and breastfeeding women
People over the age of 65 years old
People who are significantly overweight
People with darker skin e.g. those of South Asian, Afro-Caribbean or African origin
The NHS advises not to take more than 100µg (4000iu) of vitamin D per day, as very high doses of vitamin D can cause negative side-effects. We tend to recommend no more than 50-75µg of vitamin D per day. Higher doses than this can be recommended by a doctor for certain people, but it is advisable to only take high doses of vitamin D if you are under the guidance of your GP or healthcare professional.
Vitamin D is considered a very safe supplement, and the levels provided by our products are not known to have any negative interactions with any prescription medications. However, if you are taking medication, it is important to keep your GP informed of the supplements you are taking.
