As time goes on, the news is getting out regarding the importance of Vitamin D to our health. From reducing the risk of some types of cancer to a possible role in the development of conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Vitamin D is receiving a lot of press of late.  

While we can produce Vitamin D upon exposure to the sun’s UVB rays, winter and clouds can block the rays, thereby preventing its production. If winter brings grey skies (I live in the Pacific Northwest so I know...), then it’s unlikely that you will be able to produce much, if any Vitamin D. Supplementation is regarded as essential by many organizations including the Canadian Cancer Society.

How much to take? Most health care professionals now advice supplementing with 1000 iu daily in the winter (October to March) if you live in the Northern Hemisphere. And, if you are dark skinned or elderly, it’s often advised to take Vitamin D year round.  

In addition to supplementing myself, I ensure that my kids are getting enough Vitamin D as well. A product like [Link Removed] is a tasteless and convenient one a day dropper dose that doesn't result in morning battles.  

Do you supplement?
