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 has been shown to play a critical role in supporting overall health, including immunity,2 bone health 3,4 and mood.5 If you live in the US or Canada, it’s likely that you aren’t getting enough Vitamin D from its primary natural source: sun exposure. Research shows 6 upwards of 40% of the population has a deficiency.
During winter months far from the equator, there’s not enough UVB radiation from the sun to stimulate adequate production of Vitamin D on the skin. Latitudes that include New York City and Boston are Vitamin D dead zones from November to March.7,8 During summer months, sunscreen use curtails the skin’s ability to make Vitamin D. Unless you plan to eat a plate of fish bones every day, it’s darn difficult to improve your Vitamin D levels from food.9
