Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, is likely starting to kick in for some people. As the days get shorter, many will find their moods starting to mirror the dark, cold, weather. It’s not just a romantic fallacy—there’s an actual reason. Less time in the sun means less Vitamin D, causing a drop not just in mood but energy, immune strength, and more.
If you haven’t been proactive about your Vitamin D levels before now or you’re starting to notice some signs of depression, it’s never too late to boost your Vitamin D levels. Make sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D and other essential nutrients each day with Cardio CVS Complete.
During the winter, there are a couple of ways to naturally increase your Vitamin D levels in addition to a supplement like Cardio CVS Complete. You can make a focused effort to get more sun, and you can eat foods naturally rich in Vitamin D.
To get more sun, try planning ahead. Plan outside activities or errands for the middle of the day, when the sun is out and the weather is warmest. If you work inside during the day, step outside during a break—not only does it help boost Vitamin D levels, but it helps set your circadian rhythm (especially in the morning) so you’re less tired during the day.
Remember, you still need sunscreen, even on cloudy winter days. While getting some sun helps, it’s not a complete solution.
The best food group for Vitamin D may be seafood. Cheese and eggs also have Vitamin D. While many foods are fortified with Vitamin D (grains, milk, processed foods like cereal), they are typically fortified with less bioavailable forms of nutrients. If your diet excludes these foods or doesn’t feature them daily, a multivitamin like Cardio CVS Complete is especially important.
Make sure that you’re supporting your mood, energy, and more with enough Vitamin D this winter with Cardio CVS Complete.
