Don'T Forget The Sunshine!

Vitamin D deficiency is serious business. I've been paying closer attention to this problem since my Mom had a serious problem with it last winter. She was holed up in the basement during our long power outtage. We had a bad winter last year, gray, snowy, icy. She had to get shots & take tons of D. Go out in the sun and you might need a Vit. D supplement too to stay healthy this winter!

    Hi Alikatz! I think that might work for simple mood alteration, but for Vit. D, nothing that I know of works like sunshine. Our bodies are made to work with the sun and Vitamin D is a necessity. When you think back over the years, people worked outside without choice all through the year. I think this is a newer issue since we now have so much at our fingertips that we don't need to step outside the door. I do think that the seasonal depression would be much helped by these lights, though.

Here's a good article from the Mayo Clinic:

probably have to copy/paste that to your address bar.

God bless!

    What do you think of the box lights for artificial sunshine and helping with your Vit. D
