As we enter the winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, it is important to be aware that over the next several months, the sun will not be a good source for vitamin D. In most of the US and all of Canada, the sun does not get high enough in the sky for us to produce vitamin D between November and February – no matter what time of day. This is our Vitamin D Winter. To learn more about this, I encourage you to listen to our featured video of the week and look over the sunshine calendar.
The Linus Pauling Institute is a treasure trove of information and research on nutrients and healthy living. We are proud to have Dr. Adrian Gombart, who specializes in vitamin D and the immune system, as a member of our International Scientist Panel. This past August, Dr. Gombart gave a presentation, Vitamin D: Bone Up for Winter, in case you didn’t catch it then, or if you are looking for a refresher, now is the perfect time to give it a look/listen.
Any time you want to hear what leading experts in the field of vitamin D have to say, please take a look at the videos section of our web site. You can hear webinar presentations, presentations/talks from various seminars, or interviews with leading scientists from many different research areas (cancer, diabetes, nutrition, etc.). If you have a peer group that is interested in a particular topic, contact us and we can help find you a video for a D*party. Have people over to watch and discuss together. Sometimes having a meeting is the impetus people need to listen, to change. Give it a try!
