It's believed that vitamin D helps stimulate the production of peptide – substances in the body that are able to fight off bacteria, fungi and viruses.
The vitamin is produced by exposing the skin to sunshine, which will be easier said than done during days on lockdown.
In fact, Public Health England is now recommending people to consider taking vitamin D supplements as the lockdown continues.
A note on the NHS website reads: "Consider taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day to keep your bones and muscles healthy.
"This is because you may not be getting enough vitamin D from sunlight if you’re indoors most of the day."
What's the recommended daily dose of vitamin D?
Public Health England is recommending Brits to consider taking vitamin D supplements due to the lockdown.
Although they are very safe, taking more than the recommended amount every day can be dangerous in the long run.
Below are the recommended daily doses depending on age:
- Children aged 1-10 shouldn't have more than 50 micrograms a day
- Infants (under 12 months) shouldn't have more than 25 micrograms a day
- Adults shouldn't have more than 100 micrograms a day and if they're taking supplements the recommended amount is 10 micrograms a day
You can also find vitamin D in egg yolks, oily fish and red meat, but it can be challenging to obtain recommended levels from food alone.
