Who needs Vitamin D?
The UK’s Department of Health recommends that: Some people won’t get enough Vitamin D from sunlight because they have very little or no sunshine exposure. The Department of Health recommends that you take a daily supplement containing 10mcg of Vitamin D throughout the year if you:
- Aren’t often outdoors – for example, if you’re frail or housebound
- Are in an institution like a care home
- Usually wear clothes that cover up most of your skin when outdoors
- People with dark skin from African, African-Caribbean and South Asian backgrounds may also not get enough Vitamin D from sunlight.
- They should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10mcg of Vitamin D throughout the year.
Signs and symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency

How much vitamin D do I need?
Babies up to the age of one year need 8.5-10mcg of vitamin D a day. Children from the age of one year and adults need 10mcg of vitamin D a day. This includes pregnant and breastfeeding women, and people at risk of vitamin D deficiency. From about late March/early April to the end of September, the majority of people should be able to get all the vitamin D they need from sunlight on their skin.
Should I take Vitamin D tablets?
Advice for adults and children over 4 years old
During the autumn and winter, you need to get vitamin D from your diet because the sun is not strong enough for the body to make vitamin D.
But since it’s difficult for people to get enough vitamin D from food alone, everyone (including pregnant and breastfeeding women) should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D during the autumn and winter.
Between late March/early April to the end of September, most people can make all the vitamin D they need through sunlight on their skin and from a balanced diet.
You may choose not to take a vitamin D supplement during these months.
People at risk of vitamin D deficiency
Some people will not make enough vitamin D from sunlight because they have very little or no sunshine exposure.
The Department of Health and Social Care recommends that adults and children over 4 take a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year if they:
- are not often outdoors – for example, if they’re frail or housebound
- are in an institution like a care home
- usually wear clothes that cover up most of their skin when outdoors
- If you have dark skin – for example you have an African, African-Caribbean or south Asian background – you may also not make enough vitamin D from sunlight.
You should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year.
Can children take Vitamin D?
The Department of Health and Social Care recommends that babies from birth to 1 year of age should have a daily supplement containing 8.5 to 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year if they are:
- formula-fed and are having less than 500ml (about a pint) of infant formula a day, as infant formula is already fortified with vitamin D
- Children aged 1 to 4 years old should be given a daily supplement containing 10 micrograms of vitamin D throughout the year.
What happens if I take too much vitamin D?
Taking too many vitamin D supplements over a long period of time can cause too much calcium to build up in the body (hypercalcaemia). This can weaken the bones and damage the kidneys and the heart.
If you choose to take vitamin D supplements, 10 micrograms a day will be enough for most people.
Do not take more than 100 micrograms (4,000 IU) of vitamin D a day as it could be harmful. This applies to adults, including pregnant and breastfeeding women and the elderly, and children aged 11 to 17 years.
Children aged 1 to 10 years should not have more than 50 micrograms (2,000 IU) a day. Infants under 12 months should not have more than 25 micrograms (1,000 IU) a day.
When I moved to the UK I was concerned about the lack of sunlight here in winter. This meant that my Vitamin D levels were probably going to lower and I knew I had to start taking supplements. This Vitamin D supplement works wonders.
I am very happy that I started taking Vitamin D3 from Eureka Wellbeing. It's been 2 months since I was told by my doctor that I had a very low vitamin D count. After just a month of taking this supplement, the extreme muscle pain in my back and neck vanished.
I had been feeling tired and drained for a while and it felt like I was always trying to catch up. My family doctor recommended that I start taking Vitamin D tablets. I didn't want to think of how much time and money I had spent on other products that failed me before so I was sceptical at first, but this stuff actually works! The change has been incredible
I have been taking Vitamin D3 of Eureka Wellbeing for a long time now and can say that I believe that taking it contributes massively towards helping keep my immune system healthy. I always get sick, but when I started taking this vitamin, I noticed a huge difference. It is easy on the stomach too, you can't even tell that you have taken it!
