Do you need more Vitamin D?

Get your vitamin D level checked.  I live in New Hampshire – northern climes have less sunlight which is our body’s source of D – and wear sunblock which blocks out the sun’s rays that we need to generate vitamin D.  These are the two most common reasons why someone’s vitamin D level is low.  Who knew?! 3 days after starting D3 supplements, I felt like a different person.  You need to ask your doctor for this blood test along with the other tests you usually have.

Here are a recent New York Times article and a research paper from health.gather.com  I hope you find them interesting.
