Vitamin D: The Sunshine Vitamin

Get Your Daily Dose Year-Round With Nature Made

NORTHRIDGE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2012) - June 20th marks Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, when we can take the most advantage of sunlight.

Sunlight is necessary for us to produce Vitamin D, but even with long summer days, the National Center for Health Statistics reveals that nearly one third (1/3) of the population is still at risk for low Vitamin D levels.

"Because of increased time indoors and use of sunscreen to protect us from sun exposure, our bodies might not make adequate amounts of Vitamin D, an essential nutrient for bone, teeth and immune health," says Dr. Melina Jampolis, Physician Nutrition Specialist. "If this is part of your daily routine, a Vitamin D supplement is ideal. I encourage most adults to add a 1,000 to 2,000 IU Vitamin D supplement, like Nature Made, to their diet to fill the Vitamin D gap."
