Episode 19: The Power of Vitamin D

The Power of Vitamin D

Nicknamed the ‘sunshine vitamin’, the last decade has revealed Vitamin D to be far more crucial to our health than many could ever have imagined. Vitamin D was primarily seen as a nutrient crucial for bone health, but we now know that symptoms of low levels can include everything from trouble sleeping, low mood, to even a dysfunctional immune system. Such revelations have even led some governments to consider making it mandatory to include in common foods, as it has been estimated that at least 15% of the world’s population, are deficient or have insufficient levels. Today we’ll be discussing the power of Vitamin D. We also interview Kwame Peprah, a Senior Pharmacist & University Lecturer on whether or not multivitamins are actually worth your money.
