The Importance of Supplementing Vitamin D After Summer
Getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals can be tough, as each person has their own diet, daily routine, and unique bodily requirements. However, one thing most people in the UK have in common is that it’s especially difficult to get an adequate amount of Vitamin D during the autumn and winter months. At YrHealth, we’ve got plenty of supplements that contain Vitamin D so nobody has to go without the nutrients they need to live a healthy life (no matter how dreary the weather can be).
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is an essential micronutrient that contributes to the body’s regulation of calcium and phosphate levels. When these levels are optimal, they help maintain the health of bones, muscles, and even teeth. A lack of Vitamin D can therefore cause issues in these areas, in addition to potential symptoms like fatigue, hair loss, poor mental health, aches and pains, and more. In addition to maintenance of muscles and bones, Vitamin D also contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system. As it can be easily absorbed, most Vitamin D supplements, including ours, contain Vitamin D3.
What is Vitamin K?
Vitamin K is a multifunctional micronutrient. It contributes to the body’s ability to clot blood properly. Additionally, it also helps people maintain healthy bones. One of its most important functions is helping to transport calcium so it can reach the bones. This also prevents it from building up in other places, such as arteries. Most Vitamin K supplements, including our own, contain Vitamin K2. To be more specific, our Vitamin K2 supplement contains Vitamin K2 MK-7 Menaquinone, which is a highly bioactive form of K2. It is sometimes referred to as the gold standard of Vitamin K2.
Why is it important to take Vitamin K2 with D3?
As mentioned above, Vitamin D3 helps the body regulate calcium levels, while Vitamin K2 helps ensure that calcium is absorbed into bone rather than other parts of the body. Calcium relies on both of these micronutrients to play its important role properly. Without D3, the levels of calcium in the body would likely be unbalanced or low, leading to issues with bones, muscles, and more. Without Vitamin K2, calcium would likely build up in areas where it could become harmful, such as in arteries.
We ensure that our supplements containing Vitamin D3 also contain Vitamin K2, as this helps avoid any unhealthy deposits of calcium. So, for those looking for a simple Vitamin D supplement, our Vitamin D3 & K2 Tablets are the safest and most effective option, all one one tiny and easy-to-swallow package.
Why is supplementing Vitamin D more important in the winter?
Getting an adequate amount of Vitamin D is essential for living a healthy life. During summer, it’s easier for people to get Vitamin D through sun exposure, in addition to the foods they’re consuming. However, when autumn and winter come around, this can become more challenging, especially in the UK’s climate.
Supplementing Vitamin D during these times, or even year round for those who have a Vitamin D deficiency, can help contribute to better overall health. In fact, according to the NHS, the UK Government recommends taking a daily Vitamin D supplement in autumn and winter months.
