The Sunshine Vitamin- a drug we may be missing

The Sunshine Vitamin: a drug we may be missing

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about Vitamin D. Low levels of vitamin D have been associated with worsening autoimmune diseases, increasing the risk of frequent infections, heart disease, and mental health conditions.

It is unique as it is the only vitamin that is produced in your skin in response to sunlight. It is both a hormone and a fat soluble vitamin.

Recently, I watched Dr. Rhonda Patrick discuss the new research regarding the links to adequate Vitamin D levels and our immune health.

Here is a quick video outlining some of the important roles vitamin D has in our body.

Remember that regular exposure to moderate levels of sunshine, and proper supplementation may be your best bet to strengthen your immune system. Blood tests are available to assess your vitamin D status and determine what supplementation is best for you.
