If you feel tired despite getting enough sleep, if you don’t enjoy life and have trouble concentrating, a lack of vitamin D is a possible cause. 80 to 90 percent of vitamin D is produced by the body itself through exposure to sunlight through the skin. 15 to 25 minutes in summer are enough to cover the multiple vitamin D requirements.
In addition, the skin produces less vitamin D when it is covered with sunscreen. Vitamin D is stored in adipose tissue and muscle cells, and in small amounts in the liver.
Vitamin D is also absorbed by the body from food, but only in combination with fat.
Vitamin D is mainly found in animal products, such as fatty fish, liver, eggs, pork and soft cheese. But not only.
There is only a need for dietary supplements during the winter months if you are one of the risk groups. One must always seek advice from a doctor before deciding to take vitamin D supplementation.
