Ways To Get The Vitamin D You Need

Erin Day
Vitamin D is essential for optimal health, it supports bone health and mineral absorption. Lack of vitamin D can lead to health problems, so how can you be sure you have enough?
With summer coming to an end, we need to stock up on vitamin D while we can.
How can we do that? By getting at least 15 minutes of sun a day!
According to Medical News Today, people with light skin only need around 15 minutes in the sun to get enough vitamin D.
People with darker skin don't produce as much vitamin D, so they may need up to a couple of hours.
Eating fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna, and cod liver oil is another way you can get some vitamin D!
How it's made
Our body's version of photosynthesis is when sunlight hits cholesterol close to the surface of the skin and turns it into hormone D.
So prepare for winter by soaking up the sun today!
