Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that helps your body absorb calcium for strong, healthy bones and teeth – particularly important in growing children.
Vitamin D is produced by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Unfortunately, for much of the year, it is difficult to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from sunlight. As a result, the UK Department of Health recommends that all infants and children should take a vitamin D supplement.

Vitamin D has the greatest potential for toxicity of all the vitamins, though amounts up to 1000mcg are generally agreed to be safe in adults. Younger adults or children may supplement up to 400iu daily. Vitamin D is theoretically contraindicated while taking warfarin (albeit no case of increased bleeding has ever been reported) and verapamil medications. Oestrogen-based hormone medications may increase blood levels of vitamin D (and hence improve bone density).
