Vitamin D…what’s the big deal?

Vitamin D is an interesting vitamin that happens to be a pretty prevalent topic in heath news. So what’s the big deal?

Vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin, is a fat-soluble vitamin that is responsible for mineral absorption in the body (think calcium and bone health!) Our bodies were designed to synthesize vitamin D in response to UV radiation…but did you know that if you live north of Atlanta, it’s virtually impossible to make vitamin D from the sun during the winter months?

You may be surprised to learn that not all sunshine is created equal and that vitamin D is responsible for way more than just bone health. Learn all about the right kind of sunshine, supplementation and current research regarding Vitamin D in my most recent podcast:
