Winter and Vitamin D


An article suggests that Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is critical to your good health. 

Yet the shorter winter days and colder weather makes it tougher to get this vital nutrient.

Vitamin D is a hormone and is made by the body in response to exposure to sunlight.

A lack of Vitamin D can cause a host of health problems.

"Evidence suggests that a lack of Vitamin D may raise the risk of a host of problems from bone-thinning, heart disease and cancer to diabetes and even depression. The answer, experts agree, is taking a supplement throughout autumn and winter."
