Why is a Vitamin D test important?
With temperatures starting to drop, you may find yourself outdoors less, and did you know the most efficient way our body synthesizes Vitamin D is done using sunlight?
While fortified milk, cereal and certain types of fish can provide limited amounts of Vitamin D in the diet, the main source is sunlight. For that reason, many people with indoor jobs, living in northern climates, or with concerns about the sun’s harmful effects on skin may have a Vitamin D deficiency. This is potentially serious, since Vitamin D is critical to good bone health. Other medical studies suggest that Vitamin D may help lower risks of heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
