Many studies have recently shown the importance of Vitamin D. We’ve always known this to be true, but our increasingly sedentary lifestyles and significant amount of time spent indoors are pointing to an increasing lack of Vitamin D.
Where does Vitamin D come from? The easiest way to get vitamin D is about 10 to 15 minutes of time spent in the sun. Our skin uses the sun to generate vitamin D, and it is actually beneficial for a host of functions in our body. These functions range from regulating our moods to keeping our bones strong.
Recent tests were conducted in a laboratory against bones that had sufficient amount of vitamin D versus those that were insufficient in vitamin D levels.
