The "Sunshine Vitamin"
Vitamin D has been given this nickname because it is created by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. This essential nutrient cannot be produced by the body on its own and must be obtained from sun exposure, and nutritional sources including food and supplements. With less sun exposure, nutritional sources provide the best form of support.
Vitamin D-rich foods include dairy, lean meats, fish oil, eggs, and fortified cereals. Vitamin D supplements complement healthy diet choices, providing a high concentration of vitamin D to promote a healthy lifestyle. This nutrient works in conjunction with calcium, magnesium, zinc, and other key minerals to help fill in nutritional gaps in your regimen.

Vitamin D Directions for Use
Always consult with your health care provider before starting any supplement program. Due to the mounting evidence of the benefits of additional vitamin D in the diet (as well as reports of widespread vitamin D deficiency), the recommended daily allowance (RDA) was increased in 2010 to 600 international units (IU) for everyone aged 1-70 and 800 IU for adults older than 70.
