While vitamin D is normally associated with the winter blues or your bone health, some studies have found that low levels of vitamin D is associated with higher levels of inflammatory markers and can play a part in cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Some experts also suggest that having low Vitamin D can aggravate inflammatory conditions, so vitamin D therapy is now being considered an important part of treating these diseases. In general, it’s a good idea to have your vitamin D levels tested; according to a recent study, more than two-thirds of teens and adults in the U.S. are vitamin D deficient!
2 Steps to Fix It!

I made the above video as part of the curriculum of my Gut Health, Anti-Inflammation & Bloat Blaster Program which is the ONLY coaching program that will teach you how to eliminate the biggest offenders that may be the culprit behind your weight gain, causing bloat and inflammation & teach you to implement wellness practices to ease your body back into its healthiest state – free of bloating, inflammation and all the illnesses that can develop because of it (including cancer, diabetes, obesity, and the list goes on!).
My Favorite Vitamin D Supplements
My Favorite B12 Supplements

* The above supplements are suggestions. Brands I have used for both me and my coaching clients -brands that I trust- but If you are taking any prescription medications, you should discuss adding in supplements with your medical doctor prior to taking any.
