Dr. Doireann O’Leary reveals why you need Vitamin D supplements

Although we love dark, cosy evenings, our body doesn’t thank us for its lack of vitamin D during the winter months.

Vitamin D is crucial for us in so many ways, as it helps to support the immune system of both children and adults. Although a deficiency in vitamin D usually has no signs or symptoms, those of us in northern Europe typically suffer from the effects of it during the winter season, due to the lack of sunlight.

So, what can we do to help bring our vitamin D levels back to a healthy rate, as the winter months continue? Well, Cork-based GP and Women’s Health Expert, Dr. Doireann O’Leary, has come up with an incredible solution!

Dr. O’Leary has included a vitamin D supplement into her popular Supplements Made Simple range. With her job as a practicing GP, Dr. O’Leary was encouraged to introduce vitamin D to her range, as she notes that she regularly sees deficiencies amongst her patients. 

With this simple and effective supplement, you and your loved ones will be able to care for your vitamin D levels, even with a lack of natural sunlight. For the women in your family, vitamin D can help to prevent preterm labour, high blood pressure and  gestational diabetes in pregnancy. 

When it comes to peri- and post- menopausal women, low vitamin D is associated with weak bones (osteopenia) and brittle bones (osteoporosis), meaning that keeping healthy levels of vitamin D is important at any stage of life.

Available in both a user-friendly spray and a convenient gel capsule form, everyone in the family can comfortably take Dr. O’Leary’s new vitamin D supplement. Simply take one tablet per day, or pop a quick spray under the tongue, and you’re good to go!

Supplements Made Simple’s Vitamin D is available to purchase now (RRP €10.95 / £10 for a one-month supply). The full range is available in pharmacies nationwide and online at www.supplementsmadesimple.ie.
