Why you need vitamin D

It's that time of year when our bodies stop making vitamin D from sunshine. To keep your bones and muscles healthy, take a vitamin D supplement every day between October and early March. This is especially important as many of us have been indoors more than usual this spring and summer.

You can get vitamin D from most pharmacies, as well as supermarkets and other retailers. You just need 10 micrograms a day – it's the same for the whole family.
