Vitamin D is a necessary vitamin, as it helps us to absorb minerals, like magnesium and calcium, in our intestines. We get Vitamin D from sunshine and from some foods. Vitamin D3 and D2 are compounds from food. D2 is found in fungi (mushrooms). Vitamin D3 is found in fish and grass-fed beef or calf liver. Some foods in the supermarket are fortified with vitamin D.

that breast cancer death rates tended to be higher in areas with low winter sunlight levels and lower in sunny areas.
If you live in a place with little sunshine, chances are good that you are vitamin D deficient. I have heard from many people that when they took vitamin D supplements (based on blood work showing they were deficient), a lot of their health issues improved. Maybe this is why we typically feel better in spring and summer?
Suggested dosage: Have your doctor check your vitamin D levels through a blood test and prescribe a proper amount of supplemental vitamin D. Get 10 to 15 minutes of sun on bare skin daily.
