Feeling Blah!!! Tried...No energy......

Do you know your Vitamin D levels?

 

Vitamin D prevents osteoporosis, depression, prostate cancer and breast cancer and even affects diabetes and obesity. Vitamin D is perhaps the single most underated nutrient in the world of nutrition. 

 

It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your diet. Sunlight exposure is the only reliable way to generate vitamin D in your own body. Our bodies can produce vitamin D on their own when exposed to sunlight, but the skin must be free of sunscreen, sunblocks, and clothing, which all interfere with the process.

 

Simple test: If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum, you may be suffering from chronic vitamin D deficiency right now.

 

If you feel low energy, especially during the winter season where we have shorter days, this may also be an indication of low vitamin D. 

 

You can check your Vitamin D levels with a blood test. 

Once the levels are determined, a supplement of Vitamin D is usually prescibed.
