Our bodies need Vitamin D, but so many of us are not getting enough.
Sitting behind desks and eating snacks and foods that are not supplying our system with the nutrition our body requires is, sorry to be so blunt, killing us quickly.
Maybe you are optimal weight and assume you are healthy, but there are signs your system provides that will tell you to get some D… Vitamin D.
Where do you get Vitamin D?
Let me be clear, there are very few foods that provide Vitamin D. Now there are some cereals that manufacturers claim there is Vitamin D added, but I suggest you look at the other ingredients in those cereals. You will probably find added sugars, preservatives and possibly GMOs.
Some of the primary foods that supply Vitamin D are:
- Fatty fish like tuna, salmon, mackerel, etc…
- Beef liver – How many of you eat that?
- Egg yolks
But the best way to get your Vitamin D is not from something you ingest, it is from the sun.
Yes, the sun’s rays entering our skin create a process in which our system naturally manufactures Vitamin D.
You need sunlight!
I know that many people are probably suffering from Vitamin D deficiency and do not even realize it.
- People who work night shift and sleep during the day.
- Office workers.
Another fact is the paranoia that people have of cancer from the sun.
Okay, I will not argue that the sun can also damage you, but only if you overdo your sunlight exposure. Just like nearly anything, you have to be wise and use common sense.
Use sun protection… Yes, your body will still manufacture Vitamin D if you have sunscreen on your skin.
Just make a plan to get out in the sun and get your D.
How do you know if you are short on Vitamin D?
Your body and your brain will give you signs telling you to get Vitamin D. But you need to know what those signs are.
I am going to tell you various signs that your system may be giving you that you need some D. Do know that I am not a medical doctor, so you should seek your Doctor’s advice too.
Weakness in muscles
If you notice that your muscles are not showing the strength they did previously, it could be a sign that your low on Vitamin D.
Remember that if it feels serious, you need to see a Doctor.
Studies have shown that once you hit 50, the body does not manufacture Vitamin D as sufficiently as it did when you were younger.
Once you hit that age, you need to be proactive and get Vitamin D by eating properly.
Pain in your bones
Now this could be serious, so I do suggest you see a Doctor, but having pain in your bones can be a sign that you are deficient in Vitamin D.
Low energy levels and tiredness
If you find yourself constantly tired and you have low energy levels, you just may be low in Vitamin D.
Scientists have found that Vitamin D affects serotonin levels in our brains. If you are feeling grouchy often, it might be a low D level.
Get some dose of sunlight and be happy.
Hypertension and high blood pressure
Again, it is a good idea to seek professional medical opinions, but studies have also shown a direct link with hypertension and low Vitamin D levels.
It’s true! Dandruff can be a sign that you are deficient of Vitamin D.
While that isn’t the only cause of psoriasis, the Mayo Clinic claims that getting more Vitamin D can greatly help people with psoriasis.
In areas of the world where the sun doesn’t shine for long hours during certain seasons, depression is a huge problem. Suicide rates are higher and other depression related problems.
If depression is an issue, you probably need more Vitamin D.
Vitamin D plays a huge role in our overall health. It can help our immune system, cardiovascular system and many other areas of our health.
So I suggest you proactively seek as much Vitamin D as you can. Get out in the sun more and remember that Blu-Lina Organic Spirulina is a great source of D too.
Also, this supplement formula by the noble prize winning Dr. Dwight McKee has Vitamin D with Vitamin K. Vitamin K helps absorb the D for optimal performance:.
Do you have any questions?
Just ask below and will you please share this with others so they can get their D.
Thank you and have a safe and healthy day!
