Check if You Have Low Vitamin D Levels
Vitamin D is synthesized in your skin, then is converted to active form– 25(OH) D — in your liver and kidneys. Anything below 25 ng/mL is considered low.
Vitamin D regulates calcium levels in your blood (calcium is needed for proper nerve function and muscle contraction, bone health and many other things), helps counter inflammation and supports your immune system.
If you have low Vitamin D levels, make sure you get adequate sun exposure to your trunk, legs and arms and back (30 minutes direct sunlight per day), and supplement with 3,000-5,000 IU Vitamin D per day. Since it is fat soluble, take your Vitamin D supplement along with cod liver oil to increase absorption.
