We have been isolating ourselves, watching everything there is to see on Netflix, and quite frankly just waiting to get back outside to live life again. With all these changes in our normal day to day life, I sit back and wonder; how is this affecting our health as a whole?
Spending too much time indoors, you might find that your health begins to suffer, without even realizing. “Staying inside all the time may lead to one missing out on several health benefits of sunlight,” NYC-based physician Dr. Nesochi Okeke-Igbokwe, M.D., M.S., explains. “Exposure to the sun is essential as it can help with the regulation of one’s circadian clock, it enables the body to synthesize vitamin D, and additionally helps to improve one’s mood.”
So, if you’re feeling moody, experiencing anxiety, having trouble sleeping, getting sick, feeling fatigued, or having changes in your appetite, you may be experiencing a lack of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin, is essential to maintaining total body health, yet is not found in many foods. It’s needed daily to keep bones and teeth strong over your lifetime, and to ensure the proper functioning of heart, muscles and nerves – it even helps your blood to clot. A daily regimen of this D3 (cholecalciferol) is the best way to treat and prevent vitamin D deficiency, whether from lack of sunlight, poor nutrition, chronic illness or aging.
