Vitamin D

Tis the season for building bones and the immune system. Vitamin D is produced in the skin and metabolised in the liver. Some foods like fish, butter and liver contain it however primarily the body is designed to use sunlight to make it.

These days I see fortified this and that and it makes me wonder, so I started doing some research. Vitamin D is not a Vitamin like any other in that it is a precursor to steroids in the body. Research is emerging and caution is needed. 

Summer is here so get out and get your Vitamin D supply stocked and if you are concerned about your vitamin status, get it tested before you go out and spend all kinds of money on supplements you may not need and that may cause more harm than good in the long run.
