Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a group of fat soluble vitamins which are important for many functions in the body. It is sometimes added to food staples such as milk, flour and butter. It is not often found naturally in foods, the average person gets their vitamin D from sun exposure.
Between March and October the body can create vitamin D from direct sunlight on the body. Through autumn and winter it is recommended that we need to rely on vitamin D from food sources and supplements.
