Winter season: get vitamin with these tips

Winter is here. Much of India is covered by dense fog, resulting in drastically limited sun exposure. But worry not. Here are some tips that will help you get enough Vitamin D. 

Sun exposure 

Even on cloudy days, spending time outdoors can expose you to UVB rays, aiding in Vitamin D synthesis. 

Step out at the right time 

Plan your outdoor activities for when the sun is at its peak. This increases the possibility of being exposed to UVB rays, even on foggy days. 

Vitamin D-fortified foods 

Make small additions to your diet. Have more foods like fatty fish (salmon, mackerel), fortified dairy or plant-based milk, eggs, and mushrooms to boost the Vitamin D intake. 

Take supplements 

If getting enough Vitamin D from your meals and sunlight is difficult, consider taking supplements. Consult a healthcare expert to determine the right dosage for your specific needs. 

Indoor UV lamps 

UV lamps designed for indoor use can simulate sunlight and aid in Vitamin D production. Be cautious, and follow the guidelines to prevent overexposure. 

Monitor levels 

Check your Vitamin D levels with blood testing regularly to ensure that you maintain adequate levels, especially during months when natural sunshine is scarce.
