Why do most of us need supplementation of vitamin D?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Vitamin D increases serotonin, the mood neurotransmitter. It boosts your immunity, promotes healthy neuromuscular functions, and helps protect you from some forms of cancer. The easiest way reap the benefits of this nutrient is to spend 15 minutes in the sun a few times a week. Be mindful that sunscreen will prevent you from getting adequate vitamin D outdoors; try skipping sunscreen for just 15 minutes.
