Am I Getting Enough Vitamin D?

When doing the basic blood test, anything less than 30ng/ml is considered low. According to the CDC(Centers for Disease Control) a significant number of males come up short of this number. Most areas it's very difficult to get enough sun because the angle to the earth is such that for most of the year you won't get the Vitamin D.

Here's what to do: You can always move to central Florida or further south where you are at a latitude where you get Vit D all year. That can a bit difficult though so I recommend taking a supplement. Also, keep in mind that animals store this vitamin in their fat. Therefore don't be afraid to eat meat with so fat. Lastly, don't drown yourself in sunscreen when you do go out. If you know you may get burnt - cover up.
