Vitamin D Deficiency and What You Can Do
It looks like we will get some sun today! Did you know that no food naturally gives us Vitamin D? The only way for your body to get Vitamin D is either fortified foods (mainly milk) or your body making it which requires a certain level of sun. In the winter months, there is usually not enough sun for your body to produce it in adequate amounts. So, Vitamin D supplementation is almost a necessity for most people in the Northern climates. Research has recently found that Vitamin D deficiency is linked to many disease conditions afflicting us. A simple blood test can determine if deficiency exists.
