A Crash Course In Vitamin D

Want to know something pretty cool?! Or at least I think that this is pretty cool. Did you know that by spending about 15-30 minutes in the sun each day will cover your RDI of vitamin D? Also vitamin D is stored in your body for 1-3 months. The vitamin D that we absorb from the sun we mostly get during the summer. So during the winter it can be a good idea to take supplements.

Sunrise over SBCC campus. I remember it being so gorgeous walking to my first class and seeing this. It was so beautiful and always made feel good inside so I always took a lot of pictures.


So we shouldn't solely rely on getting our vitamin D from the sun. A good balanced diet is always a great way to get all of the nutrients that your body needs. On average a person needs about 10mg/ day of vitamin D. Dairy, eggs and seafood contain a lot of vitamin D.

We need vitamin D for sell growth and nerve system. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to depression, obesity, diabetes among other terrible and life threatening diseases.
