When you go outside in the sun you absorb Vitamin D from the sunlight and it in turn makes you happy. This is why on cloudy or rainy days some people  feel down. This lack of vitamin D is also why some people only get depressed during winter…

There are actually few foods that contain vitamin D, naturally. However, foods like milk, cereal, bread and orange juice are fortified with vitamin D allowing some benefits. Normal, sunlight exposure provides most people with their entire vitamin D requirement.

    Good article here. It’s very clear that Vitamin D is one of the most essential vitamins for a healthy diet. It really amazes me that many people don’t put more attention and better care to their health and vitamin intake.

    Top job mate.
