Let’s talk about vitamin D. From the Vitamin D Council:

Vitamin D is important for good overall health and strong and healthy bones. It’s also an important factor in making sure your muscles, heart, lungs and brain work well and that your body can fight infection.

The vitamin D that you get in your skin from sunlight, and the vitamin D from supplements, has to be changed by your body a number of times before it can be used. Once it’s ready, your body uses it to manage the amount of calcium in your blood, bones and gut and to help cells all over your body to communicate properly.

Vitamin D isn’t like most other vitamins. Your body can make its own vitamin D when you expose your skin to sunlight. But your body can’t make other vitamins. You need to get other vitamins from the foods you eat. For example, you need to get vitamin C from fruits and vegetables.

Also what makes vitamin D unique compared to other vitamins, is that when your body gets its vitamin D, it turns vitamin D into a hormone. This hormone is sometimes called “activated vitamin D” or “calcitriol.”

Some of the functions of the body that vitamin D helps with include:
– Immune system, which helps you to fight infection
– Muscle function
– Cardiovascular function, for a healthy heart and circulation
– Respiratory system –for healthy lungs and airways
– Brain development
– Anti-cancer effects

As Washingtonians we get plenty of clouds, but not as much sun as we’d like. It has been recommended that healthy adults take 2000 IU of Vitamin D daily– most supplements contain that in a single pill. They suggest taking more if you don’t get as much sun. I do!
