Episode 19: Vitamin D: Why you need it & how to get it!
Posted on February 22 2021
In this episode, Lindsay breaks down WHY we need vitamin D and how most of us are actually deficient in it. How we can up our Vitamin D levels without risking the health of our skin in the process.
So this is what we know…It’s hard from foods alone to get enough vitamin D, here are some facts:
- We need 600 IU a day of Vitamin D
- We need Vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth
- Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to so many diseases
- Vitamin D is so important, that your body makes it by itself after your skin is exposed to sunlight
SO… we get some from the sun and some from foods… but we really need to take a good Vitamin D supplement to support it.
It’s so important to wear sunscreen daily… and reapply when you’re in super hot weather or getting lots of exposure.
Here is Lindsay’s fav sunscreen:
