Vitamin D

vitamind

Vitamin D is the new Omega 3. Vit D has become a hot topic in mainstream nutrition and medicine in the past year or so. In much the same way Omega 3 fatty acids stormed on to the scene a few years ago in the wake of the fat free days as a fat that is actually good for you. Imagine that! Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that has recently been linked to everything from reduced cancer rates, increased bone density, better heart health, and MS prevention. Vitamin D is available in foods such as cod liver oil, many different types of fish, butter and  egg yolks. The best source of vitamin D, however, is the sun. 10 minutes in the midday sun with significant skin exposure can result in 10,000 iu of vitamin D. Unfortunately, where we live there are very few months out of the year that provide the proper amount of UVB rays to create substantial amounts of vitamin D in the body. To reach optimal vitamin D levels in the Northwest year round VitaminD must be consumed.
