Vitamins and Minerals: Benefits, Usage and Differences

Multivitamins and Vitamin D are both highly popular supplements and they are regularly recommended to help give your body what it needs and keep things ticking over nicely. 

With so many different options, recommendations and individual needs, it can be difficult to identify which vitamin supplement is the best for you. We’ve put together this guide to help you choose which vitamin supplement will cater best to your needs, and how exactly it can help you.

Vitamin D Supplements


According to statistics, around 1 in 5 people in the UK have low vitamin D levels. Low Vitamin D levels are associated with poor muscular strength, rickets, fatigue, bone pain and even depression. So it’s important that you get enough Vitamin D on a daily basis. 


However, in countries where sunlight is hard to come by, such as winter season in the UK, your skin may not be able to make Vitamin D. This is why Vitamin D supplementation is often recommended; it’s a fail-safe way to ensure you avoid a Vitamin D deficiency. 


Here are some of the key benefits of Vitamin D:


  • Promotes healthy bones through the regulation of calcium and phosphorus
  • Improve symptoms of SAD (Seasonal affective disorder)
  • Studies link adequate Vitamin D to a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and kidney failure
  • Help prevent cognitive decline and dementia 
  • Reduced risk of respiratory infections such as colds and flu
  • Help support muscle repair and recovery


PhD Vitamin D Supplements contain 180 days worth of tablets, to be taken daily alongside meals. Each tablet contains 50mmg Vitamin D, helping you reach your daily recommended dose each and every day with no hassle or worry.
