Fight Off Back Aches & Pains This Winter With Extra Vitamin D

Good morning, everyone! Today even if I wasn't taking my daily supplements (and I will be as soon as I finish blogging) I would probably get an adequate dose of Vitamin D - it's bright and sunny here in NC, a beautiful Fall day. However, we are coming up on the part of the year where if you live much above the bottom third of the country, you cannot get enough Vitamin D from the sun (November through March the sun isn't strong enough) ---- so it's important to start supplementing your Vitamin D in pill form (always get Vitamin D3, absorbs better). I take 5000 IU's a day (under doctor's supervision, of course)----and I know I have mentioned this before, but I am a big fan of Dr. Soram Khalsa's book The Vitamin D Revolution (get it on Amazon.com---best price).

This morning an article popped up on Medical News Today on Vitamin D---it's a good one, click here to read it. Enjoy your Sunday----I'm off to the movies (Amelia) and lunch with a friend today!
