What is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in foods such as mushrooms, oily fish, butter and egg yolk. Vitamin D has functions and benefits that are probably more wide ranging than any other vitamin.

There is increasing evidence for the beneficial effects from dietary vitamin D which has shown to contribute to:

  • Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
  • Normal absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
  • Normal muscle function
  • Normal blood calcium levels
  • Normal function of the immune system
  • The process of cell division

For adults over the age of 60, it has also been shown that a daily vitamin D intake of 20µg or more from all sources helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a risk factor for bone fractures among men and women 60 years of age and older.

Vitamin D - the sunshine vitamin

While our bodies manufacture vitamin D on exposure to sunshine, the levels in many countries is so weak during the winter months that our body makes little or insufficient amounts, meaning that dietary supplements are often the best way to safeguard intakes of vitamin D. Many populations, including the majority of those in Europe, require an additional dietary source of vitamin D to achieve and maintain an adequate status of this important vitamin.

In addition, the body does not generate vitamin D when sitting behind a glass window, whether in your car or at home, because these UV rays cannot penetrate glass to generate vitamin D in the skin. Sunscreens, even weak ones, while essential to protect the skin, can affect the body's ability to generate vital vitamin D.

Vitamin D supplementation recommendation

The UK Department of Health recommend that adults and children over the age of one should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10mcg of vitamin D, particularly during autumn and winter. People who have a higher risk of vitamin D deficiency are being advised to take a supplement all year round.

Why vitamin D supplementation may be especially recommended, including:

  • Government health advice to reduce sun exposure which can mean less Vitamin D is produced naturally by the body.
  • Reduced sun exposure in some groups of the population e.g. older people, those who cover their skin, certain occupations, medical reasons and those with darker skin tones (as greater skin melanin content can reduce the skin's production of vitamin D).
  • Increased requirement at certain life stages e.g. the elderly population, whose skin may not be able to synthesise vitamin D as effectively.
  • Those with increased dietary intolerances (e.g. lactose and dairy) or allergies.
  • People who are on a diet.

TEA+ Reviews

"Easy to drink and fruity (drank on way to work from 07.20)"

Miss S A, United kingdom

"Being someone who values the benefits of green tea as an alternative to more traditional black varieties, the TEA+ range appealed. I found the natural fruity taste just as pleasant as the brands I might usually buy from the supermarkets, but with the added reassurance of vitamin intake in every cup! The Vitamin D range, with a fresh and vibrant taste of mango and pineapple, has been a brilliant way to start the day this winter, all the while ensuring that I’m supplementing a vital vitamin I know it is important to increase my intake of at this time of year."

Mr T B, United kingdom

"I decided to swap my usual 10am Earl Grey cuppa for a Tea+ Cleanse. I was pleasantly surprised how the taste of apple & blackcurrant came through with the taste of the tea. I am not usually a fan of fruit teas as I tend to find they over power the taste of the tea. But this Tea+ had the right balance and knowing I get the added vitamin is bonus. "

Mrs J C, United kingdom

"I tried the Tea+ Defence vitamin tea today. I normally don’t drink fruit teas, however this was a very pleasant tasting pick me up after my lunch. It was also reassuring to know that I got an extra boost of vitamin C and Ginseng and some warming defence against the inevitable cold weather at this time of the year."

Mr A B, United kingdom

"Refreshing way to boost daily vitamin intake whilst enjoying a hot drink. Would like to taste more green tea in the blend."

Mr J B, United kingdom

"I enjoyed the TEA+ drinks, my favourite flavour is orange and blueberry (Defence) . The added bonus of a dose of vitamins in tea is a great idea! "

Mr J W, United kingdom

"I'm a big fan of the TEA+ Cleanse and Energy. They adds a little something extra to your regular green tea, not too fruity, tastes good and good to know you can get both vitamins and your caffeine dose in one"

Ms B N, United kingdom

"A great way for us to get more vitamins into our body, whilst having something that we all are accustomed to and enjoy, tea. I let them brew for a bit longer then the recommended time, and it tastes fantastic."

Mr C K, United kingdom

"My favourite is TEA+ defence. I have been drinking it for the past 2 weeks and feel like I’m doing something good for my health, whilst having a warm cup of tea!"
