Disclosure: always consult your doctor about your health, and before you take supplements. This is just what I do and what works for me.
With the Covid-19 pandemic, and everyone being indoors, we need to very carefully, get outside, and get some vitamin D from the sun. Vitamin D wards off depression, and makes us happy. It also helps out immune systems, and various studies state that it can prevent flu.
However, we just can’t go out to a crowded park, or beach, and contribute to the pandemic. What we can do is go for walks in secluded places, go for walks early in the morning or at times when not many people are out. We can read in our back yards, or front yard. We can do some gardening. Use a little sun screen. Sunscreen can prevent skin cancer, and aging your skin. Get outdoors anywhere, where there is not a bunch of people.
Vitamin D is important. It acts different than other vitamins. It acts like a hormone and every cell in your body has a receptor for vitamin D.
Some signs of vitamin D deficiencies:
- Depression (My doctor once tested my vitamin D levels for this) My result was normal though.
- Hair loss
- Pain. Muscle and bone pain. Back pain.
- Getting sick often.
Foods that have vitamin D in them, (in case it is too difficult to get out without being able to social distance.
- Salmon, Tuna, or fatty fish.
- Orange juice
- Egg yolks
- A supplement of cod liver oil
After I am in the sun, I feel happy and energized!
Stay stay, happy and healthy!
