It depends on what you’re eating and how often you get to play in the sun down south. As you can see from the map below from Harvard, we are above the 37th so don’t get enough direct sun light most of the year.
You can get enough from food but it can be difficult (tip- eating lots of fish not only helps your Omega 3 level but also your Vitamin D).
There are 3 major benefits of Vitamin D.
- Cold and Flu Protection
- Stronger Bones and Muscles
- Lower Risk of Cancer
I like this article for a deeper look.
Yes, I’ll take all three of those. The good news is we can do a simple lab test to find out where your levels are because Vit. D is something you don’t want too much of either. Mention to us you’re interested in boosting your immune system, preventing cancer, and decreasing your risk of injury and we’ll make sure you’re on the right track.
