Vitamin D is an essential nutrient needed to support proper bodily functioning. You can get vitamin D by exposing yourself to direct sunlight. It is essential to get enough vitamin D as it can improve your mood, strengthen your immune system, and regulate your blood pressure.
- Proper hydration is especially important in the summertime sun and heat. It is recommended to add 12 ounces of water for every 30 minutes you spend in the heat or sweating.
- Eat foods in season such as garlic, radishes, arugula, carrots, bell peppers, watermelon, and mangoes in the summer.
- If you are traveling this summer, keep an eye on the news. Watch if the area you plan to go to is experiencing issues that would impact your health.
- Both sunscreen and bug spray are essential summer must-haves when enjoying the great outdoors.
Enjoy the summer while having fun and staying safe!
