Sunny side up

Eve Kalinik explains how getting sufficent vitamin D - dubbed the ‘sunshine vitamin’ - and being outside support a happier gut and mind

MAINTAINING A SUNNY disposition literally relies on sufficient amounts of natural light. Daily sun exposure of 10 minutes gives us adequate levels of vitamin D, which has a crucial role in maintaining healthy bones, keeping the immune system robust and supporting cardiovascular health. Vitamin D is also an important factor for gut health because it helps regulate the release of serotonin, which has a significant eff ect on mood. We can get dietary sources from eggs, butter and oily fish although not in large amounts and the greater amount of vitamin D is synthesised internally via skin exposure to sunlight. Here in Blighty, it is paramount to supplement throughout the winter months, unless you are heading off to warmer climes.
