How to get more vitamin D
Vitamin D is abundantly available thanks to sunshine. Anything from a daily walk to taking your lunch break outdoors should be enough to top up your levels, although it’s always important to be sun smart and not risk burning your skin. Additionally, these methods may not work as well during overcast or rainy days.
Another great source of vitamin D is food. It can be found in oily fish (such as salmon and tuna), as well as eggs, milk, milk products, and liver.
Finally, you can also top up your levels with vitamin D supplements.
Liposomal vitamin D is available in vitamin D lipo-sachets, which support bone and muscle health. Being liposomal, these supplements are better and more easily absorbed into the body than standard forms such as gummies or pills, and the gel formulation may be preferable for those who dislike pill-form supplements.
Vitamin D supplements are easy to find at any pharmacy or health food store. These are usually in pill form, or you can consider general supplements that include vitamin D.
As always, chat to your doctor first before adding supplements to your daily routines.
