You will have seen the recent news about Vitamin D, I've been banging on about this for ever and a day and I'm thrilled that its finally out there !! I've long held a very controversial view re exposure to the sun, lets face it was not so long ago that sunshine was held in high esteem and Naturopaths prescribed sun 'bathing' in controlled conditions. 'Heliotherapy' was important and the sun and its benefits revered. Of course we have an ozone layer to think of and I'm not suggesting we all lie flat out for two weeks of the year and burn.
I regularly take the oral Vit D spray from Better You and they responded to the advice from Professor Dame Sally Davies, recommending that all children aged six months to five years should take vitamin D supplements, particularly during winter, to prevent the condition Rickets and other bone conditions. Andrew Thomas, Founder of BetterYou says: "BetterYou has led the field in vitamin D innovation for more than two years, producing the market's first vitamin D daily oral spray, in a range of strengths, catering for every vulnerable group.'

“Particularly suitable for infants and older children the BetterYou spray is an excellent method of supplementation as there are no difficult tablets to swallow. In addition vitamin D relies on our bloodstream for transportation rather than the gut. An oral spray ensures faster uptake via the mucous membrane, entering the bloodstream three or four times faster with little wastage”
