New research that has been commissioned by The UK and Ireland Mushroom Producers has revealed that one in four people in the country are not getting their daily recommended vitamin D intake.
Apparently the research indicated that a further quarter of respondents had “no clue” on what the recommended daily amount of vitamin d actually is. " It's important to take vitamin D as you may have been indoors more than usual this year.
You should take 10 micrograms (400 IU) of vitamin D a day between October and early March to keep your bones and muscles healthy.
There have been some reports about vitamin D reducing the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19). But there is currently not enough evidence to support taking vitamin D to prevent or treat coronavirus."
The UK & Ireland Mushroom Producers group is a partnership between key mushroom farmers across the UK & Ireland who are naturally enhancing mushrooms with the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D.
