Vitamin D deficiency: How much to take and how to know you’ve taken too much

180

If you aren’t getting outside in the sunshine every day, you’re probably going to need to take Vitamin D supplements.

Vitamin D is in some foods such as oily fish and egg yolks, but it’s tricky to be consistent enough in your diet to benefit from.

Gabriela said: “Adults should be taking at least 10 micrograms (400IU) of vitamin D per day.

“But if deficiency is present, then on an individual basis I would look at increasing the dose, especially during winter here in the UK.”

Gabriela recommends those at high risk of Vitamin D deficiency take a supplement all year round, and that includes those of us who are not often outdoors during lockdown.
