Vitamin D plays a crucial role in bone health and overall well-being, with additional benefits for heart health. Despite its association with sunlight, a significant percentage of the population, particularly in the UK, may experience vitamin D deficiency during winter and spring. Common symptoms include fatigue, increased hunger, and bone pain. Certain groups, such as individuals with darker skin or limited outdoor exposure, are more susceptible to deficiency. Dietary sources of vitamin D include salmon, tuna, eggs, and fortified milk and orange juice. Supplements are often recommended, especially in regions with reduced sunlight. Balancing the need for vitamin D with the risk of skin cancer from sun exposure requires careful consideration.
