If there is one Vitamin to rule them all–look no further than Vitamin D. Receptors for this “sunshine vitamin” are found virtually everywhere in the body.1 Vitamin D plays a role in maintaining healthy immunity, bone health and positive attitudes.2-5 If you live in the US or Canada, and spend ample time indoors, it is possible you aren’t getting enough Vitamin D from its primary source: sun exposure. Research has suggested part of the US population is not getting optimal levels.6,7
During winter months far from the equator, UVB radiation from the sun is more limited. UVB radiation is required to stimulate adequate production of Vitamin D in the skin. Latitudes that include New York City and Boston may have limited exposure from November to March.8 During summer months, it is wise to use sunscreen and stay in the shade, but in doing so you are lowering the skin’s sun exposure to sun. Also, since vitamin D is not as plentiful in food, supplementing is an easy way to boost your levels.9
