With the lack of sunlight in the UK a lot of people aren’t getting enough Vitamin D. This has lead to Public Health England (PHE) recommending that everyone should take a supplement containing Vitamin D especially during the winter months. As Cod Liver Oil is one of the richest, natural sources of Vitamin D it is a good option for the majority of people in the UK who aren’t getting sufficient sun exposure.
