It's March, sunlight is lasting longer, flowers are popping up and temperatures are going up. Do you know what isn't lasting longer, popping up or going up? Our Vitamin D levels.
March is typically the month that we exhaust our Vitamin D reserves and our levels hit an all time low. During the winter months If you live above the 37 degrees latitude, ( CT is 42 parallel), then you really can’t get much Vitamin D from November to March when the sun is very low in the sky
Vitamin D is essential for our health. Low levels leave us experiencing:
Muscle weakness, muscle aches, or muscle cramps.
Mood changes, like depression.
Poor immune response
Having a diet rich in Vitamin D foods will help ensure that you maintain a healthy level of D throughout the winter months. Some great choices would be:
raw maitake mushrooms
dried shiitake mushrooms
green leafy vegetables
Levels still low or not a fish lover (like me)?
A quality Vitamin D supplement may be helpful to get those levels up.
Uncertain where to get a high quality Vitamin D or other supplements?
