During these unchartered times, and the weeks of necessary lockdown to try to halt the spread of corona virus, we have been blessed with some of the hottest and sunniest days during April and May. For those of us lucky to have a garden, this has without a doubt been a godsend, enabling us to be out in the fresh air and just to have that outdoor space away from the confines of 4 walls.
I don’t know how I would have coped with lockdown had our unpredictable British weather not been so kind, and it certainly isn’t lost on me that we are not all lucky enough to have a garden or outdoor space to retreat to, and that the government restrictions limit the opportunity for many to get outside for a walk or visit a park. 🏃♀
The sun not only helps to lift the mood, it is also the best source of vitamin D. The Public Health Organisation recommends adults supplement with vitamin D during the less sunny months of March to October and all year round for older adults and for the dark skinned. Such is the power of vitamin D that there is building evidence that Covid-19 patients with vitamin D deficiency are more likely to experience the severest symptoms, and trials are underway to see if it can actually be used to treat or prevent the disease.

We will definitely be keeping a close eye on this research, and lets hope that vitamin D is found to have a positive role in the battle against corona virus – coming from a background working in vitamins and supplements this is an area of great interest to us. 🌿
