  • Top 10 Best Vitamin D Supplements in the UK 2020 (Holland and Barrett, Boots and More)

    Top 10 Best Vitamin D Supplements in the UK 2020 (Holland and Barrett, Boots and More)

    Vitamin D is essential for our health. The sun is our primary source, but with modern lifestyles now being predominantly led from our desks, our lives are increasingly being moved further away from the outdoors. This is a problem all on its own, but with the UK being in such a northern location, we receive much less sunlight than many other parts of the world. This lack of sun has led to a significant portion of the population being low in vitamin D. A healthy diet is key to having optimum vitamin levels, but in addition, you can also take daily supplements. In this article, we’ll cover the essential info needed to choose the right product, including the difference between D3 and D2, as well as sharing our top vitamin D supplements from Boots, Tesco, Amazon and more.
