So, I had a doc tell me I was low in Vitamin D. I thought she was crazy. I play tennis in the Texas sunshine a lot. I have red hair and thin skin, how can I possibly be deficient?
I found an article by Dr. Mark Hyman and found out. Sunscreen, for starters, baby! I wear a lot of it. I read in a different article that frequent showers can also deplete your stores, ding ding ding! When I posted the doc’s article on my Facebook page I was surprised when so many friends immediately responded that they were also deficient and taking supplements. D is vital in so many ways, and I’m finding more and more reasons to supplement. Here’s the post by the doc. Let me know what you think. Are you D-ficient too? Do you supplement? Thoughts?
