Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for good health; in particular bone health, immune health and mental health. Many studies have shown that a deficiency in Vitamin D contributes to many unwanted physical and mental symptoms.
The best source of Vitamin D is widely available and free of charge -it’s sunlight. When our skin in exposed to sunlight, it converts it to Vitamin D3. Amazing facts like this really shine upon my science-geekiness and make my studies all the worth while! 🙂
When we’re faced with cooler weather and shorter days we usually also see a rise in colds and flu’s, poor quality sleep and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). One of the ways to boost immunity to fight colds and flu’s, gain better quality sleep and alleviate the symptom’s of SAD is to gain adequate levels of Vitamin D.
