Add some D to your day. Vitamin D, that is.
You probably already know that Vitamin D helps regulate calcium and promotes absorption which helps with bone mineralization. Did you also know that Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to blood sugar problems, low back pain, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s, kidney stones, psoriasis, depression, seasonal affective disorder, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and auto-immune diseases? If you are dealing with any of these issues, consider adding Vitamin D to your day.
The most natural way to add Vitamin D is to get outside. Sunlight actually causes the body to produce Vitamin D. “If you’re going to get it from the sun, about 20 to 25 minutes of exposure is helpful,” says Stephen Honig, MD, director of the Osteoporosis Center at the Hospital for Joint Diseases, in New York City.
You can also get it from your food. Fatty fish (including salmon, trout, and tuna) and eggs are good sources of Vitamin D.
Most of us don’t get enough sunlight or foods rich in Vitamin D to provide all that we need, and that’s where supplements come in.
