There are multiple ways to acquire vitamin D into our body system. The simplest and basic is direct sunlight exposure. Vitamin D can also be found in foods such as salmon, sardines, egg yolk or yoghurt. Vitamin D supplements are also easily available in tablets form.
Although vitamin D can be easily acquired, deficiency can still occur. This can be due to a few factors such as obesity, prolonged use of sunscreen, having darker skin or working indoors.
Vitamin D is an easily available nutrient to help strengthen our immunity. Monitor and make sure you have adequate vitamin D level to get you through the cold and flu season!
