Vitamin D comes for free!
Did you know that Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy? Right from keeping your bones strong to reducing the risk of cancer and preventing heart diseases, Vitamin D plays a very crucial role in your wellbeing. Deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to several complications and disorders, including osteoporosis – a condition that makes your bones weak and porous, almost like sponge.
So how do you ensure that you get sufficient Vitamin D everyday? It’s really simple. And absolutely free too! The best source of Vitamin D is the Sun. All you need to do is expose your skin sunshine for 10 - 15 minutes, every morning, without using any sunscreen and you’ll have enough Vitamin D for the day.
What makes Vitamin D truly unique is the fact that it is a nutrient as well as a hormone that’s produced when your skin comes in contact with the Sun’s rays. The Sun is undoubtedly the best source, as your body will absorb only the required amount of the nutrient, unlike dietary or supplementary Vitamin D, wherein it will have to de-metabolize what’s extra.
So wake up a tad early starting tomorrow, step out and soak up the golden rays of sun. It’s the first step to good health.
