The body itself makes Vitamin D when it is exposed to the sun. Cheese, Fatty Fish, Egg Yolks, Almonds, Spinach, fortified calcium foods, etc… are great food sources for Vitamin D. Low levels of Vitamin D can lead to Strength Loss, Muscle Weakness, Fatigue, Balance issues, and possible Bone Fractures. #wellnesswednesday #doyourbodygood #vitaminD #eatingright #getoutdoors
