Charity says to top up on sunshine26th March 2012
Arthritis Research UK has urged people to go outside and soak up some sunshine to help increase their vitamin D levels.
The charity says that vitamin D deficiency can cause bone loss, muscle function problems and, in some cases, rickets in children. The government recommends vitamin D supplements for pregnant women and children under the age of five but Arthritis Research UK say that the same result can be achieved by going outside for a few minutes on sunny days.
