Sorry in advance for a post on vitamin D in the winter for those of you who live in cold climates. It’s ok you can use supplements and wait for a sunny day to walk outside with short sleeves.
Let’s do it anyway because we need the reminder! Flash back photo op!
Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because the primary source of Vitamin D is exposure to the sun. When sun exposure is limited, it is important to obtain vitamin D from other sources. The best food sources of vitamin D are egg yolks, fatty fish, liver, and grass-fed cheese and butter. You can supplement with a quality D3 vitamin in an oil base for optimal absorption.
Vitamin D plays an important role in overall health and well-being. It is best known for promoting bone health and healthy calcium metabolism, but researchers have found that vitamin D is critical for all systems of the body. (Dr. Jockers)
