The Crucial Vitamin You’re *Probably* Not Getting Enough Of

By January 16, 2018 No Comments
Today we’re talking about a crucial vitamin your body needs that you’re *probably* not getting enough of – Vitamin D. No matter what #superfoods we supply you with in these winter months, you will not get the amount of Vitamin D your body needs from food alone.

“Some reports state as many as 40% of people are Vitamin D deficient.”

How Do You Know If You Are Vitamin D Deficient?

How will you know if low Vit D could be the reason you’re feeling blue? Feeling lazy/lethargic, headaches, muscle aches, and just all around moody? There’s a chance you could be needing the D…

The most natural way to get vitamin D is by exposing your bare skin to sunlight (ultraviolet B rays) –  BUT there’s a catch: you have to be outside, WITHOUT sunglasses, for as long as 15 minutes a day, as the only way your body absorbs vitamin D is through your eyes.

Supplementing Your Vitamin D

Chances are, you don’t have the time or the sign needed for this. This is where #supplementation is beneficial. Pick up Vitamin D in pill or liquid form for less than $10! We like to use this Liquid Vitamin D3 by Fertile Moon. It is vegan, plant-based and responsibly sourced Vitamin D3  from Lichen (a moss, rather than traditionally-sourced lanolin) with no animal testing. *Note: It does not have to be expensive to be effective*

Vitamin D vs. Vitamin D3 – What’s The Difference?

The recommended form of vitamin D is vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol. This is the natural form of vitamin D that your body makes from sunlight. Supplements are made from the fat of lambs’ wool. Vegan supplements use Vitamin D3 derived from Lichen. A clinical study reported in 2008 suggested that vitamin D2 works as well as vitamin D3. [Source]

Start with a serving a day, and there’s a chance you will feel more energy and generally less moody. And when that happens, come back here and give us a big virtual hug for spreading the good vibes. #PassItOn
