Vitamin D: How To Bolster It

12 October 2011 No Comment

Years ago, when it came to conversations revolving around vitamins, the main ones you’d hear instantly were B, C, or E.  The only time you’d here vitamin D mentioned was when you were reading the label on the gallon of whole milk you were grabbing at the grocery store.

Well, M and F just published even more praises for this wonderful and powerful nutrient, but also how to get enough of it in your body.  ”…one study found that fair-skinned individuals can produce up to 20,000 International Units in less than 30 minutes of sunbathing.  By comparison, there are only 115 IU of vitamin D in a cup of fortified skim milk, while a typical vitamin D supplement has 1,000 IU.  But natural synthesis of vitamin D is limited to summertime;  anyone living north of the Texas Panhandle can’t produce any during winter because of the angle of the sun….Bolster your dosage with sun, supplements, and foods like salmon, yogurt, milk, eggs, and tuna.”

One such supplement we recommend is ActiVit Multivitamins by Beachbody
