VITAMIN D 3

I have not blogged since 6/20! I apologize! Why? I really had nothing to say that would hopefully benefit one's health, well being, and maybe be entertaining This is not Facebook, no one really cares if I had my once a month steak last night with a tossed salad, lots of tomatoes, and a glass of red wine.
Vitamin D3 is valuable in improving one's health! Along with D2 it is a component of vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D3 deficiency may be associated with depression, back pain, bone health, loss of immunity and cancer. Vitamin D is in my multi vitamin-mineral but only 700 units. I am now ingesting 5000 units a day of vitamin D3. I rarely go out into the sun except for my every day needs and when I do go to the beach/pool, etc., I do what I never did when I was lifeguarding: 30 sunblock, hat, shirt and umbrella! Hence my sun exposure even at the beach is limited.
Please Google Vitamin D 3 for more useful information if desired.
