This is the time of year when we think a lot about our time in the sun – well, the lack thereof.These long winter months can be more draining than we realize, especially when it comes to our vitamin D.
Many of us connect vitamin D with our time enjoying sunlight, but that’s actually just one way we can get our daily dose of this important vitamin. Before we dive into how to get this essential vitamin, let’s go over what exactly vitamin D is and why your body needs it.
Vitamin D Benefits
Vitamin D is a nutrient that helps the body build and maintain healthy bones. This key nutrient helps support the body’s calcium and phosphate, which are vital for bone, teeth, and muscle health.
Even more, vitamin D helps maintain important cellular functions, supports immune health, facilitates muscle function, and promotes cognitive health.
People who are deficient in vitamin D often experience fatigue and struggle to maintain a healthy mood. Insufficient amounts of vitamin D, especially long-term deficiencies, can also contribute to weak bones.
How to Get Vitamin D
While most of us can’t reasonably spend hours soaking up the sun every day,there is good news! You only need about 15 minutes in the sun each day to synthesize vitamin D. Even So, during the winter months, we don’t always have enough sun exposure to supply our body with the vitamin D it needs.
Fortunately, there are other and often much easier ways to get the vitamin D your body needs to function at its best. Vitamin D is found in some foods, including potatoes, fatty fish and other seafood, mushrooms, and egg yolks.
