Get More Vitamin D WITHOUT Supplements?!
Whether or not vitamin D can protect you from contracting the coronavirus is still a bit of a mystery.
But we know this critical nutrient is essential for maintaining strong bones, protecting your heart, and boosting your immune system.
Sadly, studies show that nearly HALF of all Americans are deficient!
Fortunately, getting enough vitamin D is a whole lot easier than you’d think.
Here are five EASY ways to boost your levels as you go throughout your day.
(And none of them involve taking a supplement.)
The two primary sources of vitamin D are the sun and certain foods.
But you don’t have to spend all day outside to soak up plenty of D from the sun. In fact, you don’t even have to go outside.
Start by rolling down the windows in your car, or opening up the windows in your house. Most windows have a coating that doesn’t allow UV rays to pass through.
So removing that UV barrier is a good start.
Of course, spending time outside is your best option.
One way to easily incorporate this into your lifestyle is to start your day sipping your coffee outdoors. You’ll be getting the benefits of the morning sun, plus the benefits of the coffee (which helps lower your risk of diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and more).
Then, after lunch, head outside for an afternoon walk. One study showed that just 15 minutes of midday sun exposure was all it took to maintain sufficient blood levels of vitamin D.
On the dietary front, there are two main changes you can make to up your D.
First, swap out chicken for fish.
Fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and mackerel are great natural sources of vitamin D.
Second, eat more eggs. This incredible, protein-packed food is also packed with vitamin D.
And don’t worry, recent studies have dispelled the myth that eggs are bad for your heart. Just make sure you choose free-range eggs, as they have more vitamin D than typical feedlot eggs.
