For some reason, today, people are staying inside more, wearing sunscreen, living in polluted cities with high buildings that block the sun. They are not getting enough sunlight, and they are deficient in Vitamin D. One way to boost their immune system is to get some sunshine every day. It’s good for them and fights diseases. They get vitamin D from the sun. Getting outside makes people happier, too.
However, a naturopathic doctor advised me to take a vitamin D supplement. Explaining that people get moody or depressed if they lack Vitamin D. Studies proved people who felt sad or unhappy took vitamin D and felt better.
Otherwise, being deficient in vitamin D causes long-range effects on preventing the body from being healthy. People are more likely to come down with the flu or develop heart disease and other serious health issues if they are deficient in vitamin D.
They need a vitamin D supplement because it will guarantee they are taking enough to keep them healthy. It is best to consult a doctor and discover the correct amount of the vitamin to take.
Either way, get out in the sun more. Soak in the rays. Besides, the fresh air will do us all some good.
