The Big D

Vitamin D Benefits

Vitamin D helps to maintain calcium and phosphorous levels in the body, which are important in keeping bones healthy

Without enough Vitamin D, women are at greater risk of osteoporosis and other degenerative diseases.

As we get older, our bodies get less efficient at using Vitamin D. This affects the rate at which calcium is absorbed. Experts think there is a link between changing hormone levels and Vitamin D conversion in the body.

This means that menopausal and post-menopausal women are at greater risk of osteoporosis than younger women.

The best way to get more vitamin D is to spend more time exposing your skin to the sun. It only takes 20 minutes of sun exposure to your hands, forearms, face, and lower legs to get a boost.

Obviously, take care to not sit in the sun for too long without sunscreen
