Re: No Vitamin D?

The cool thing about vitamin D is that the body stores it until it's actually needed, and then the vitamin D is released into our systems.

So, take advantage of any sunny days that you possibly can. Dress warmly, and head out. Just a few minutes per week, like maybe 30 minutes spread out over the course of 7 days, is all you need.

Supplements of vitamin D can be toxic (vitamin A can be toxic, too) because the body DOES store it (stores vitamin A, as well), so you have to be careful how much you're taking.
