S.A.D.

I have been thinking a lot about Vitamin D over the winter and it’s not that I am just longing for a holiday!  We all know that the sun’s rays are our primary source of vitamin D, but we can get a little of the nutrient from foods such as fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel and cod) and eggs but not enough to make a real difference. Maybe some of the most common vitamin D deficiency symptoms ring a bell with you (they did with me!):

  1. Weight gain
  2. low bone density
  3. Fatigue
  4. Muscle cramps and weakness
  5. Joint pain (most noticeable in the back and knees)
  6. Blood sugar imbalance
  7. Low immunity
  8. Low calcium levels in the blood
  9. Irritability and mood changes
  10. Depression

So, if like me you are not going to see the sun soon, it might be worth thinking about supplementing D3 until Spring arrives and we get our free Vitamin D!  I have added 5000 IU drops to my water and have felt my S.A.D. symptoms just fly away. Ask if you need any guidance.
