Protect your health with Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an important nutrient which promotes the growth and maintenance of teeth and bones thus helping to reduce the risk of bone loss and bone fractures.

We acquire it from adequate exposure to sunlight and from sources such as oily fish, eggs, fortified milk and cod liver oil supplements.

Vitamin D also offers antiviral protection from flu or colds so researchers are optimistic that it might be a way to moderate the severity of viruses like COVID-19.

Along with hand hygiene and social distancing, Vitamin D could prove to be another easy, inexpensive way to protect our dental health and overall health.
