Me and My Shadow and Vitamin D

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:

  • Fatigue.

  • Bone pain.

  • 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:

  • salmon

  • herring

  • raw maitake mushrooms

  • dried shiitake mushrooms

  • egg whites

  • shitake 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?
