    I take omega 3 and magnesium. Recently discovered I'm towards the low end on Vitamin D so will get out in daylight for ten mins every day.

    It does help as long as the sun is high enough. Easy to check: If you shadow is the same length as your height (or shorter) you can make vitamin D from the sun.

    Given that I'll be heading out at Lunctime for my vitamin D, that should be okay!

    Good luck. I would have bought some vitamin D to supplement with as well.

    I know London is at a different latitude than where I live but still, my shadow is about 8 metres long.

    I use a sub-lingual Vitamin D spray in winter. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis when they discovered I had coeliac disease, so need this to make best use of calcium.
