Although we've been lucky this year with a mild Fall season, the reality is Winter is just around the corner. I'm the person who dreads this time of year, every year. I try to make the most out of embracing the cold, but the reality is, I still don't enjoy it at all. I have found 1 thing that helps my "winter blues" more than ever and that's what I'm here to talk to you about today.
I'm sure you, like most people, feel better in the summertime, soaking up the sunshine. Do you have any idea why?
What we soak in and make from the sun is extremely healing for our bodies. Vitamin D is a powerful tool and in many leading health care providers' opinions, the most critical one in building our immune system and fighting off diseases. They are finding however, that most Americans are extremely deficient for many reasons.
So what's the big deal?
Here are some facts that you may not be aware of:
The best way to know your levels is to get tested through your next routine blood screening. How to get your vitamin D is a controversial topic, but I strongly believe in supplementation. I take 5000 IU of vitamin D every day, all year round. I have found that it has helped with many of my issues, including seasonal winter depression.
