Vitamin D Intake

Posted on 03/26/2012 in Nutrition

Did you know that an estimated 70% of the US population is deficient in Vitamin D? Recent studies of this nutrient have shown that it plays a critical role in health. Low levels of Vitamin D are associated with suppressed immunity, higher risk of chronic disease,  increased risk of depression, and increased inflammation. So, what can you do? Your body can actually produce Vitamin D so regular sun exposure is important. If you suspect your levels are low, speak with your doctor about getting your blood levels checked.
