Are you Vitamin D deficient?

The Importance of Vitamin D 

     With fewer daylight hours and colder temperatures, it can be challenging to get enough vitamin D during the winter months. Vitamin D is an essential component to your overall wellness. It has a wide range of benefits such as motivating your heart, lungs, and muscles to work cohesively and prevent infection. Vitamin D is needed to absorb the minerals found in calcium and phosphorus in order to develop strong bones. We refer to Vitamin D as a pro-hormone because it is needed for a range of other hormones to function optimally.

What happens when we don’t get enough Vitamin D in our systems?

How do we get Vitamin D?

When your skin comes in contact with ultraviolet B rays Vitamin D is produced. It doesn’t take nearly as much time for vitamin D to absorb as it does for you to become tan or sunburnt. Judging by the time of day, the pigment of your skin and the amount of skin you expose to the sun, these are all components that will play a role in the amount of Vitamin D you absorb. Supplements are also a reliable source of Vitamin D when you are located in an area that doesn’t receive much sunlight. (Our fellow Michiganders know what I’m talking about!)
