If the new season has put a spring in your step, it might be because longer days naturally replenish your vitamin D. Your body needs this fat-soluble vitamin to function properly, as it affects many areas of your body, including your bones, brain, immune system, and muscles. But unlike many other vitamins, it’s easier to get your daily dose from an afternoon stroll than the foods you eat. Click through the slideshow to learn more about how vitamin D is one of the most important and fascinating nutrients you consume—and make!—on a daily basis.

 

 

The GOOD Wellness Project is an eight-month collaboration with Walgreens and Vitamin Angels, in support of the #100MillionReasons initiative to bring vital micronutrients to 100 million malnourished children across the globe by 2017. In order to gain clarity and raise awareness about health and well-being, we are diving into vitamins, alternative medicine, the effects of the environment on our body systems, and more, to provide a deeper understanding of what it looks like to live a healthy, well-balanced life.
