Vitamin D ☀️ No longer just a vitamin important for healthy bones, research is now finding it's essential for a healthy immune system, muscle function, normal utilisation of calcium (heart health), gut function, sleep and our mental health.
Now that we've reached October, we'll experience less sunshine as the days get shorter coming into winter. With 1 in 8 adults living in Ireland deficient in the 'super nutrient' and roughly 8.5% of adults supplementing, it's no wonder we are seeing dysfunction of the above occuring.
So what can you do?! First step, get your vitamin D levels tested at your GP or with a NT practitioner. It's important to know your individual requirements, as there is a great deal of individual variation & no 'one size fits all's daily dose.
