Now that the dark days of winter are over, people should consider getting their vitamin D levels checked. In the colder months when the sun is not out often, people need regular lab tests to make sure that they are getting sufficient amounts of this important nutrient, which the body produces in response to sun exposure. Individuals who use sunscreen in the summer to protect their skin should also check their vitamin D levels, since they may be blocking both the sun's rays and this vitamin with their SPF 30.
Those who do discover that they need more vitamin D should add more mushrooms to their diet. According to a recent study conducted by researchers from the Boston University Medical Center, eating mushrooms containing vitamin D2 can be just as effective at helping people keep healthy vitamin D levels as taking a supplement.
