Vitamin D for your health
Vitamin D plays an important role in our metabolism, especially for bone health. The body can produce vitamin D in the skin with the help of sunlight. Therefore, it is often called the sunshine vitamin. Unfortunately, reduced sunlight hours in the winter, lack of outdoor time and use of sunscreen can easily lead to a vitamin D deficiency.
Ideal vitamin D level
Promotes bone health and prevents osteoporosis or rickets
Protects against infections, for example cold
Vitamin D deficiency and its relation to cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, and even cancer and diabetes are also discussed in medical science.
Tips for an ideal level of vitamin D
Frequent outdoor activities (15-20 minutes of sun with more than 40% of skin exposure is optimal)
Eating vitamin D rich foods: fish (salmon, herring), liver, cheese, mushrooms and avocados
Adding vitamin supplements to diet (if necessary or recommended)
