Is there anyone else like me who would like to strengthen their immune system? One question we need to ask ourselves is, “Are we getting enough of the “Sunshine Vitamin” – Vitamin D? https://draxe.com/nutrition/vitamin-d3/ I love the change of seasons, but I am already not liking the shorter days and less sunshine we are experiencing as we head into fall. With less time spent outdoors soaking up the sunshine, I realize it’s time to start taking my Vitamin D once again.
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for your health. Vitamin D helps boost our immune system and is vital for our bones, muscles and teeth. If you live in the northern hemisphere you might be at risk of a Vitamin D deficiency. A good way to check your “D” levels is with a simple blood test.
Vitamin D can be taken in a liquid or capsule form. When choosing a Vitamin D supplement, look for a quality supplement without any fillers. I look for a natural Vitamin D3 or Cholecalciferol, not a synthetic (D2). A daily dose of Vitamin D will help boost your immune system to ward off the dreaded cold and flu bug.
You can also get your Vitamin D through food by including more fish, eggs, mushrooms and liver in your diet. Try our Salmon Loaf https://farmgirlfresh.com/salmon-loaf/, Tuna Salad Wraps (page 197) or one of our Egg Bakes (page 97 and 185 adding shiitake mushrooms) for a little added “sunshine” to your day!
