What is Vitamin D?

At Solihull Osteopathic Practice we offer a number of products to help our patients. Vitamin D is produced within the body when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays in sunlight. Typically, a few minutes in the sun each day should supply the body with enough, however many people do not get the right amount, especially in winter. This is why a supplement is often recommended.

What are the benefits?

Vitamin D is important in the prevention of osteoporosis, a disease that increases the risk of bone fractures and regulates levels of calcium in the blood which helps to build strong bones and teeth. Furthermore, some studies suggest that vitamin D can benefit the immune system and may reduce risk of prostate, colon, or breast cancer.

Why we recommend it

We started stocking supplements so that it is convenient for our patients to purchase. We recommend it to our patients as we believe that strong and healthy bones are extremely important, especially alongside osteopathy. The D supplement we sell is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
