Vitamin D is extremely important for bone health, this has long been an established medical fact. It also plays a role in the absorption of calcium and phosphorous. Vitamin D has also been shown to assist with immune heath, cardiovascular wellness, respiratory function, muscular health, and even brain development. In fact, the Vitamin D Council notes that there is a connection between Vitamin D deficiency and asthma, MS, high blood pressure, mental health, asthma, and more. We recently featured an article about the connection between low Vitamin D and IBS. So, you see, this crucial vitamin plays a significant role in overall health.
Vitamin D is not something that your body is capable of producing on its own. The best way to get what you need is to step outside and enjoy the benefits of a few minutes a day in the bright Florida sunshine, but be sure not to overdo it since too much sun exposure can damage skin. There are some foods that can provide you with a boost as well. Eggs, mushrooms, and fatty fishes like mackerel and salmon are great choices.
