Enjoying some fresh air and sunshine will undoubtedly put you in a good mood, but a new study shows that soaking up sun is also good for your heart.
Researchers in Denmark found that extremely low blood levels of vitamin D put you at an 81 percent increased risk of fatal heart disease, 64 percent increased risk of heart attack, and 57 percent increased risk of early death when compared to people with higher (but still less-than-optimal) D levels
An adequate Vitamin D level is needed for bone healthy but also for heart, blood pressure and cancer and depression prevention strategies
Vitamin D is produced by exposure to the sun but even in sunny areas it is deficient in most persons
Having a Vitamin D level checked at your doctor visit is wise and achieving a level around 50 by taking Vitamin D3 daily or weekly is wise.
