Taking Vitamin D Supplement Daily Gets the Official Nod from Public Health of England
The Public Health England (PHE) has officially recommended a daily intake of 10 micrograms of vitamin D to maintain healthy bones, teeth and muscles. It advised the government, on July 21, 2016, to make vitamin D part of the health care in the country, based on the evidence of benefit and health.
Vitamin D is made in the skin when it’s exposed to sunlight. The body can also get the nutrient from certain food (oily fish, red meat, liver, egg yolks) or food fortified with vitamin D.
