Cure those Winter Blues

As we enter the Fall and Winter seasons, the reduction of daylight, as the days get shorter, along with the lack of sunlight, cause many people to feel tired, fatigued, hungry and lazy.

Especially the East Coast residents feel this kind of depression more than mid America and the West Coast.  

This malady is for real and they even have a name for it, it is called Seasonal Affective Disorder also known as (SAD).  It actually affects about 10% of the population and there are some simple ways of getting your chin off the ground and putting on a happy face!

The real cause of SAD is due to the lack of Vitamin D.  Without enough sunlight, our Vitamin D levels, take a major drop and brings our mood down with it.  Not having the proper amount of Vitamin D in your system can create major trauma to your body.

Vitamin D is actually a hormone, not a Vitamin and it affects every major organ in our bodies.

A good supply of Vitamin D boosts your brain function and immunity in addition to reducing inflammation which means it is reducing your risk of congestive heart failure, inflammatory bowel disease, respiratory infections and allergic reactions.

People who take Vitamin D on a daily basis had more energy, better moods, better blood sugars, better cholesterol and certainly Vitamin D levels.

You should spend at least two hours every day in outdoor sunlight and a daily supplement of Vitamin D, is very important.  You cannot overdose on Vitamin D but always follow the dosage requirements noted on the bottle label.

Remember, Vitamin D is linked to the brains production of dopamine and serotonin.  So when you figure out that Vitamin D can change your life for the better, and you begin to live a life of daily Vitamin D, you will only then know and feel the benefits of this amazing hormone!

To your health!
