The Sunshine Vitamin

The Sunshine Vitamin

It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, cooler and darker, as we begin to see fall transition into winter. With the changing weather comes a lack of exposure to warm, sunny rays and as a result, it’s difficult to get all the Vitamin D your body needs. Vitamin D is often referred to as the Sunshine Vitamin because the body can produce it when the skin is exposed to sunlight. But during the cooler months, your body isn’t able to generate enough as layers of clothes are most likely covering it. But things don’t have to be so gloomy! Help prevent seasonal deficiencies with Adult Essentials Adult Strength Vitamin D, providing a healthy dose of the sunshine vitamin to keep you feeling great.

Soak up the Benefits of Vitamin D

In addition to supplementing sunshine, Vitamin D is also responsible for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, helping maintain healthy bones and teeth. But the benefits don’t end there. The sunshine vitamin is also suggested to supply a protective effect against several diseases and conditions like cancer, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis. All the more reason to ensure your body is getting enough of this essential supplement. Vitamin D can also be found in some foods, however, not as plentiful as one might hope. But it’s still important to balance your diet with these fares to help complement your intake:

  • Salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel, and shrimp
  • Egg yolks
  • Beef liver
  • Mushrooms
  • Cod and fish liver oils
  • Foods with added vitamin D, such as milk and some cereals, yogurts, and orange juices

How much is enough?

Although it’s tough to pinpoint an exact amount of time you need to spend in the sun to get the recommended amount of Vitamin D, it’s easier to maintain and regulate intake through a supplement. Measured in international units (IU), the Institute of Medicine recommends getting the following amount of Vitamin D everyday:

  • Adults ages 19-70: 600 IU daily
  • Adults older than 70: 800 IU daily
