    Natural medicine practitioners have been asking this question for years. You may have heard about the updated Public Health England guidelines extending recommendations for Vitamin D3.

    Basically, as an adult take a daily supplement containing 10mcg of vitamin D throughout the year if you:

    • are not often outdoors, such as those who are frail or housebound
    • are in an institution such as a care home (work in an office? added by me)
    • usually wear clothes that cover up most of their skin when outdoors
    • have dark skin, such as those of African, African-Caribbean or South Asian origin

    As usual, the devil is in the detail. Latest research shows that maximum absorption is by way of oil/spray/liposomal form rather than a powder pill and adding Vitamin K2 MK-7 in key and it also takes care of the calcium issue.

    If you would like to understand more, please watch free interviews with Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue. Her website is also useful There is also a recent short video by Dr Mercola.

    Quick reference to UK the guidelines .
