"D"elightful

Vitamin D also known as the sunshine vitamin.  New guidelines have tripled the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin D from 200 IU to 600 IU for ages 1-70 and to 800 IU for adults older than 70. 


Low levels of Vitamin D are correlated with:
  • Poor bone health
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Heart Disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Immune deficiencies
With the darker winter days coming make sure you are getting sufficient vitamin D for your health!
