Vitamin D is SUPER Important!

Vitamin D is so important to function of your life and so much more! And, oftentimes, people are deficient. Here is what it does for your body:

  • Prevent bone fractures
  • Prevent falls in older people and osteoporosis
  • Reduce the risk of cancer, especially colon cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer
  • Reduce the risk of diabetes, especially in young people and in those living in high altitude
  • Protect against heart disease, including high blood pressure and heart failure
  • Reduce your risk for multiple sclerosis
  • Improve you mood
  • Improve your lung function

Now, the best ways to get Vitamin D is through 20 minutes of Sun everyday without Sunblock. Also here are foods that are naturally high in Vitamin D:

  • Salmon
  • Mackerel
  • Swordfish
  • Tuna
  • Fortified Milk
  • Fortified Cereal
  • Mushrooms
  • Fortified Yogurt
  • Avocado
  • Carrots
  • Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Mangoes
  • Bell Peppers
  • Sweet Potato

Now, Sun is # 1 and the best time is 2pm – 4pm. Also, foods are a great way and yes supplements can help but Sun and Food is Best!

And the optimal way is have a blood test at least 2 times per year to make sure you’re not deficient and in the healthy range.
