Let the Sunshine In

It's been almost three days that we haven't experienced sunlight due to the low pressure area that has been hitting Cagayan de Oro. But don't you know that Is your vitamin D intake up to par? You can get it from tuna and salmon and fortified foods like milk and orange juice. But sunlight is often your best source, which is probably why most people don't get enough -- especially during darker winter/cold months.

Getting enough of this vitamin is vital to our bones and just about every other body part. Adequate amounts not only reduce fracture risk and maintain muscle strength but also appear to -- among other things -- protect your heart, reduce diabetes risk, and lower the odds of certain cancers.
