What Is Vitamin D and Why Do You Need It? – Mins® // Nutrition for now


Vitamin D production occurs when our skin is exposed to sunlight, and not many foods contain the levels we need. Public Health England and the NHS advise that everyone supplement it. 

Right now, it’s harder than ever for you to catch the sun's natural rays. Lockdown restrictions and the British weather have left levels at an all-time low. 

Our super strength gummies pack 4000IU per serving. More than any other. Here's what that means for you.

One in five UK residents is now vitamin D deficient - we are here to change that.


Ensure your biological shield is at full strength and ready to defend your body from infections and whatever life throws at you. Vitamin D enhances the pathogen-fighting effects of white blood cells that help form your immune defence, decrease inflammation, and promote immune response.

Looking after our muscles has never been more important. Recent studies noted that Vitamin D supplementation has been shown to increase muscle strength, particularly in people who are vitamin D deficient. Higher serum levels of 'the sunshine vitamin' are also associated with reduced injury rates and improved sports performance. So, whether you’re a walking warrior or wannabe Ironman, Vit D is here for your muscular needs. 

bolster bones & joints

Vitamin D deficiency can lead to Osteoporosis, where bones lose density and become weak, increasing the risk for bone fractures. Give your bones the support they need, and increase calcium absorption. It’s also crucial for muscle movement, communication between nerves, and fighting inflammation. So, sure up your skeletal system with the support it needs to stay strong and flexible.


turn that frown upside down

 After months inside under lockdown, our exposure to the sun's natural light has led to high levels of Vitamin D deficiency. Evidence suggests there may be a relationship between SADS (seasonal affective disorder syndrome) and a lack of 'the sunshine vitamin'. It's associated with levels of both serotonin, important for mood regulation, and melatonin, which regulates our sleep. Low levels of either hormone could contribute to symptoms of SADS. 


Terrific Turmeric has been used for centuries due to its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Some scientists believe Vitamin D can help improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin – the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels – and thus reduce the risk of insulin resistance, which is often a precursor to type 2 diabetes. 


Feeling low and a little bit flat? It may result from a number of different aetiologies including lack of sleep, anxiety, anaemias, underactive thyroid, adrenal hypofunction, etc. While researchers are still trying to determine the mechanisms by which vitamin D deficiency contributes to fatigue, many agree that supplementation improves fatigue.
