Vitamin D

As you are aware, this vitamin strengthens your bones and nourishes your muscles and nerves. Most of the vitamin D we use comes from the sun and activates calcium and phosphorus into our bloodstream so they can spread their good deeds around. If your production or intake of this vital nutrient is low, the levels of calcium and phosphorus in your blood will drop as well, and your body has no choice but to steal them from your bones! Researchers have found that people who spend a fair amount of time outdoors during the summer months actually build up a "pool" of vitamin D that can last through the winter because vitamin D is fat-soluble and is stored in the body. This is great news, especially for anyone who has arthritis or osteoporosis. Now you know that you need more vitamin D in order to get more calcium distributed throughout your body!
