Get some SUN!!!

Vitamin D is something that flies under the radar for most people, we all know it comes from the sun, but it is also one of the most critical vitamins in your body. Here are a few of the main reasons you should be supplementing with Vitamin D:
1. You're probably deficient.
Depending what study you look at, you can find varying levels of the percentage of population that are deficient in Vitamin D. What they all agree upon though, is majority of people are Vitamin D deficient - up 75% for those with light skin and 97% in those with dark skin!
2. It helps to prevent injuries.
If you have high Vitamin D levels you are less likely to become sick as well as have a less incidence of getting injured.
3. It makes you stronger.
Those found to be deficient on Vitamin D are probably deficient in Testosterone as well. A year long study found a 25% increase in testosterone supplementing with 3332 IU of Vitamin D daily while the placebo group showed no improvements.
4. It makes you sleep better.
Sunlight = happy, while darkness and indoors can cause depression which then you are not getting enough natural sunlight.
5. Its a super vitamin.
Vitamin basically does it all; can help improve cognition, reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Increases bone strength, regulates hormones and combats inflammation.
If you are not already supplementing with a Vitamin D supplement, you might want to look into the benefits of it. You can always just go outside and take a walk in the sun for just a mere 15 minutes to reap the benefits of a supplement !
