What does vitamin D do?

Vitamin D is responsible for a number of functions within the body. It helps regulate calcium, ensuring it enters the bone to maintain healthy bones and teeth. It supports a healthy immune system, protecting the body from illnesses such as the common cold and plays a fundamental role in ensuring normal muscle function.

It comes in two major forms, D2 and D3. While both forms can be processed by the body, vitamin D3 occurs naturally within humans and is generally considered the preferred form of supplementation.

Vitamin D is one many fat-soluble vitamins that the body requires to function correctly. We make this essential vitamin from the skin's unprotected exposure to sunlight, but it can also be found in certain foods such as eggs, cereal and fatty fish.

Despite being vital for healthy bones and a robust immune system, our more sedentary lifestyles have meant that exposure to the sun has dropped dramatically and our processed and specialist diets has meant that supplementation is needed to maintain a healthy level of vitamin D.

Vitamin D is responsible for a number of functions within the body. It helps regulate calcium, ensuring it enters the bone to maintain healthy bones and teeth. It supports a healthy immune system, protecting the body from illnesses such as the common cold and plays a fundamental role in ensuring normal muscle function.

It comes in two major forms, D2 and D3. While both forms can be processed by the body, vitamin D3 occurs naturally within humans and is generally considered the preferred form of supplementation.

Sources of vitamin D

It is naturally found in a number of animal products as well as some fortified foods. Including:

  • Oily fish (tuna, mackerel, salmon)
  • Eggs
  • Dairy products (milk, cheese)
  • Beef liver
  • Fortified foods (cereal, breads, juices)

Vitamin D deficiency: A widespread issue

Vitamin D deficiency remains a worldwide issue with around 1 billion people across the globe experiencing inadequate levels. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) estimate that vitamin D deficiency in the UK affects one in five adults and one in six children – that’s 10 million of us!

Signs of vitamin D deficiency can manifest in common health conditions such as frequent coughs and colds, tiredness and fatigue, low mood, achy muscles and poor bone and tooth health. So, it’s easy to see why we all need it.

If you suffer from any of these symptoms regularly, it could be a sign that you’re lacking in vitamin D!

Factors affecting vitamin D absorption

  • Sun exposure
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Sun creams over 15 SPF
  • Diet
  • Weight
  • Age
  • Location
  • Season

The sunshine problem

We get the majority of this vital vitamin from exposure of our skin to sunlight. The sun’s ultraviolet B rays (UVB) are absorbed by cholesterol in the skin and is then synthesised into vitamin D.

However, in the UK the UVB rays are only strong enough between April and September for vitamin D production, meaning for large parts of the year, vitamin D production from the sun is impossible.

Couple this with the UK’s notoriously cloudy climate, UVB rays being blocked by sun creams and our ever increasing indoor existence. You can see why this is becoming an increasing issue!

Groups at higher risk of deficiency

Although everyone should consider a vitamin D supplement during the winter months, The Department of Health recommends that the following ‘at risk groups’ take a vitamin D supplement all year round.

All pregnant and breastfeeding women

Older people aged 65 years and over

Infants and young children under 5 years of age

People who have low or no exposure to the sun

People who have darker skin

How do vitamin D oral sprays work?

Each Vitamin D Oral Spray is formulated to provide optimum nutritional delivery of this essential vitamin, helping to elevate your vitamin D levels

Each Vitamin D Oral Spray delivers tiny droplets into the soft tissue of the mouth.

These droplets are then absorbed, entering the rich vein system below.

This allows vitamin D to quickly enter the bloodstream for optimal absorption.

Discover your vitamin D level

BetterYou has been working in collaboration with Sandwell and West Birmingham City Hospital NHS Trust since 2013 to offer you a complete vitamin D testing service which is available from the comfort of your own home.

A simple bloodspot test, you'll receive an accurate picture of your vitamin D3 levels and our team will send you a personalised supplementation plan, as well as a complimentary Vitamin D Oral Spray based on your results.

Supplementation advice

Recommendations have varied dramatically over the years. As we have discovered more and more health issues associated with vitamin D deficiency public health authorities have increased supplementation recommendations to a wider section of the population to the point we find ourselves at now which is that everyone is now advised to supplement.

By taking a vitamin D test, you’re able to establish your current vitamin D status and supplement accordingly, however even if you don’t know your levels, you can download our supplementation guide which provides recommended dosages to get your vitamin D to an optimal level.

5 signs you're not getting enough vitamin D

With one in five adults and around one in six children reported to have low vitamin D levels in the UK, could you be one of them?

We look at the tell-tale signs that you may be deficient in the sunshine vitamin.

1. Aching bones

Vitamin D is vital for supporting bones and their structure. The nutrient helps regulate calcium – which is essential for maintaining strong teeth and bones – within the body. When you’re running low on vitamin D, your bones can weaken, increasing your risk of stress fractures.

2. Weak muscles

As well as maintaining bones, Vitamin D supports normal muscle function. Poor muscle strength and weakness may be associated with vitamin D deficiency, which is particularly common among elderly people as the capacity for the skin to synthesise the provitamin calcidiol decreases with age.

3. Feeling low

Lower levels of this this vital nutrient affect the serotonin (the happy hormone) concentration in the brain. We rely on exposure to sunlight to absorb Vitamin D, so during the darker months of the year, symptoms of low mood can begin to appear.

4. Constant coughs and colds

Experts suggest that vitamin D is vital to activating our immune defences, and that without sufficient intake of the vitamin our immune cells are unable to react appropriately.

5. Gut problems

Vitamin D is a fat soluble nutrient, so if you suffer from a gastrointestinal condition that affects your ability to absorb fat, it will also affect your absorption of vitamin D, putting you at greater risk of a deficiency.

Concerned about your vitamin D status?

If you're showing any of these signs and are worried about your vitamin D levels, or if you don't think you're currently getting enough, you can quickly and easily find out your level with a blood spot test.
