The Benefits of Vitamin D

We are always touting the benefits of Vitamin D, especially since we live in Maine. Being so far north leaves us much more susceptible to vitamin D deficiencies. 

Vitamin D is crucial to a wide variety of processes in our bodies and this recent study just discovered another one. The study in the article below has found a connection between low vitamin D in newborns and increased risk of high blood pressure. It’s important for women who are pregnant to ensure they are getting all of their nutrients in adequate amounts, as fetal development is so important. Vitamin D is no exception! As we are now in January, be sure to stock up for the rest of the cold, dark months!
