Why is that?
You probably spend way more time inside than outside. Life has moved indoors which means like most people around the world, you’re probably not getting enough sunlight to provide your body with the vitamin D it needs to thrive.
So back to the first question – Why is Vitamin D so important?
Recent reports suggest that over half of the world’s population suffers from vitamin D deficiency because very few foods in nature contain vitamin D, and most of us don’t get enough sunlight to provide our bodies with the vitamin D we need. Given that, where can we get that much needed vitamin D?
- The sun. Sunshine generates vitamin D in our skin. The National Institutes of Health recommends 5-to-30 minutes of sun between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., at least twice a week on the face, arms, legs, or back without sunscreen, and not taking into account cloud cover, pollution, and sunscreen which blocks the sun’s UVB rays that start the process of vitamin D synthesis in our skin.
- Drink plenty of milk and eat lots of oily fish. Since an 8-ounce glass of milk contains about 100 IU vitamin D, and oily fish, like salmon, which provides about 100 IU of vitamin D per ounce, do the math to determine how much milk and oily fish you need to realistically achieve the optimal level of 2,000 IU vitamin D per day.
One of the best botanical sources of vitamin D is, Nutriliteâ. Scientists have created a vitamin D to guard against dietary deficiency and support bone health, cardiovascular health, and your immune system.
Taking Nutriliteâ supplemental vitamin D is an easy way to ensure that you’re getting the optimal 2,000 IU/day, without increasing the risk of skin cancer or skin aging from excessive sun exposure.
Now you can put the power of the sun in the palm of your hand with Nutriliteâ Vitamin D.
