Review Your Supplements

With the nights drawing in, it can be more difficult to get enough vitamin D from natural sunlight.

Certain foods like oily fish, red meat and egg yolks are a great source of vitamin D, too. If you’re unsure about whether vitamin D supplements are right for you, speak to a pharmacist or consult your GP.
