Be kind to your body this Winter!
Are you feeling a bit more sleepy than normal and struggling to get out of bed in the mornings?
It could be down to a lack of Vitamin D now we’re getting shorter days, longer nights and a lot less sunshine! This is the time we need to be kind to our bodies and support ourselves as best we can.
Boosting Vitamin D levels can help support our overall health, including our immune system and our mood, and what easier, yummier way than with a bottle of Get More Vits Mango & Passionfruit Vitamin D?
It’s like sunshine in a bottle and will help your tired eyes feel more awake again.
Just because it’s cold and grey outside, doesn’t mean your drinks need to be any less exciting! Switch cups of tea and coffee at lunchtime and treat your body to a vitamin boost. Add sliced fruits and fresh herbs to give yourself some goodness!
The NHS have suggested that ‘between October and early March we don’t get enough vitamin D from sunlight’.
Do you remember this study performed by the University of Birmingham back in the Summer? It details that ‘20% of adults and 16% of children aged between 11 and 18 years are estimated to be deficient in Vitamin D’?
We really do need to think more about the type of food we eat and the drinks we enjoy in colder months. So, if you’re craving hearty, warming comfort food try to include some oily fish, red meat, liver, egg yolks or fortified foods like fat spreads and some breakfast cereals (check the box!) that contain vitamin D. Or find a supplement that works for you…like our yummy drinks ?
For people at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes or those recently diagnosed, there is also evidence to suggest that supplementing with high-dose vitamin D can help to manage blood glucose balance and may slow the progression of disease.
Are you getting your daily dose of Vitamin D? If not, you know what to do!
