I shared this post last year and thought it was a perfect time to re-post it given summer is upon us and the sun is out to play. The Importance of Getting Enough Vitamin D - here's a little sneak peak of what you can expect before you dive into it!

What are the benefits of Vitamin D?

  • Lowers the risk of breast and colon cancer
  • Lowers the risk of multiple sclerosis
  • Decreases risk of type 1 diabetes
  • Decreases the risk of bone fractures
  • Decreases memory and brain decline
  • Improves muscle strength
  • Decreases blood pressure
  • Decreases risk of gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia and small gestational age in pregnancy
  • Decreases risk of depression
