Healthy Tips of the Week:

  • The minimum daily requirement is 400iu (international units). About 93% of Americans are not getting the minimum required Vitamin D daily.
  • One major reason of not getting enough Vitamin D is that it’s hard to find it from the food we eat, as very few foods contain a sufficient amount.
  • The sun can be a good source of Vitamin D. However, it’s difficult to monitor how much we are getting daily.
  • A good option to acquire enough Vitamin D is over-the-counter supplements. It is the easiest way to maintain the right dose of Vitamin D required on a daily basis.
