Are you getting enough Vitamin D? Probably not! You are most likely lacking in Vitamin D especially Vitamin D3.
Getting enough Vitamin D3 lowers your risk for cancer, diabeties, depression, asthma and heart disease. On an everyday basis, having enough Vitamin D3 helps prevent you from catching colds and the flu. Most doctors and scientists are recommending 2000 iu of Vitamin D3 a day for adults to maintain optimal health. You can get your Vitamin D3 from exposure to the sun, supplements, and your food.
Some Vitamin D-rich foods are eggs, sun-dried shiitake mushrooms, fish such as mackeral, herring, sardines and sockeye salmon. Cod liver oil is also very high in Vitamin D. Most people need to take supplements to maintain adequate Vitamin D3 levels, especially in the winter. You can buy your Vitamin D3 supplements at your local pharmacy and health food stores.
