Super Vitamin – The Sun

With winter in full swing we experience what some might call “the winter blues”. We tend to lose our summer tan, our bodies start to ache more and we can even feel depressed and sad.

But why?

Because we are missing out on a Super Vitamin that your body really needs!
And where is the best place to get this Super Vitamin?

The Sun!

That’s right, I’m talking about good ol’ Vitamin D.

Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight.

Did you know that a Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to cancer, diabetes, fragile, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, multiple sclerosis, autism and much more.

Did you also know that this miraculous vitamin can lead to the prevention and potential cure of many devastating and debilitating conditions like the ones mentioned above?

Vitamin D is not just a vitamin though… it is also a hormone.

As a vitamin, it helps your body absorb calcium.

As a hormone it helps your body manufacture it’s response to your skin’s exposure to sunlight.

The problem is 85% of us aren’t getting enough of this “sunshine vitamin”, especially during the winter months.

If you aren’t getting enough Vitamin D from sun exposure or your food, you’ll need to supplement with Vitamin D3.

Recommended daily dose for Vitamin D is 3,000 IU’s per 100 lbs of body weight.

When your Vitamin D levels are at a healthy range you will experience improved mood, energy, stronger bone density and immune system. A super vitamin indeed!
