Unfortunately, colder and darker days are coming and with that it will be harder to get enough vitamin D from sunshine for our bodies. Vitamin D is important for many reasons:
– supports a healthy immune system
– promotes calcium absorption
– prevents depression
– increases muscle and bone strength
Deficiency leaves you susceptible to autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes. Supplementation is a good idea and Eggs and fatty fish are good sources as well.
