Healthy Living: Vitamin D

Vitamin D is one vitamin that I can confidently say I am not deficient in. I spend so much time outside that I rarely worry if I’m lacking in it. A neat fact about vitamin D is you can get it from not only food, but also the sun!  This explains why vitamin D is often referred to as the sunshine vitamin.

Food sources are egg yolks, liver, tuna, salmon and fortified milk. Since more people, particularly kids, are spending more time indoors, it brings up the concern if we are getting enough vitamin D.

We have all heard to have healthy bones we must have calcium, but we must not forget the importance of vitamin D in bone health. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphate, as well as maintains the levels of these two minerals in the blood. Drinking milk, fortified with vitamin D, and spending time outdoors are two ways to prevent vitamin D deficiencies.
