Did you know that Vitamin D can be naturally synthesized by our skin after exposure to ultraviolet rays from sunlight? Even with our great Canadian weather, we can’t always soak up the sun or even eat enough fish to get our daily dose of Vitamin D. Moreover, people living above latitude of around 40 degrees N have less sun exposure for an extended duration. As we age, our ability to produce Vitamin D in our skin is reduced: people over 65 years of age may produce up to 4 times less Vitamin D than 20-30 year old. All this can lead to Vitamin D deficiency.1 Take this single supplement daily to add a little sunshine to your life.
