Vitamin D is important to our health, especially to our bones. This time of year it can take some extra effort to make sure you’re getting enough vitamin D to stay healthy. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorous in your body, those who don’t get enough vitamin D get weak bones- especially in older adults. Most adults need about 600 IU per day, while adults older than 70 should get 800 IU per day, infants and children need around 400 IU.

However, more can be done than just taking supplements. It is said that even in the week light of winter, 10-20 minutes of activity outdoors can be enough to get sufficient vitamin D, also foods such as salmon, eggs and cheese are also great sources of vitamin D. Everything in moderation! People who overdo levels of vitamin D can lead to issues such as kidney stones, so it is key to moderate the amount of vitamin D you are in need of.
Stay healthy this Christmas!
