Can I take too much?
According to the NHS, taking too many vitamin D supplements over a long period of time can cause too much calcium to build up in the body (hypercalcaemia).
“This can weaken the bones and damage the kidneys and the heart,” explains the health website.
To keep the risks at bay, the health site advises staying with the recommended limits of 10 micrograms a day.
This advice applies to adults, including pregnant and breastfeeding women and the elderly, and children aged 11 to 17 years.
