Brighten Up Your Life With Vitamin D
VITAMIN D MAKES YOU HAPPY!!
This year Vitamin D is at the centre of the Festival’s health awareness activities. Linked to the main event’s theme ‘Happiness’, research has shown that Vitamin D might play an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression. Maintaining healthy Vitamin D levels plays an important role in keeping you feeling both happy and productive, since it helps to ward of symptoms of depression. Depression, in addition to making you feel unhappy or sad, can cause you to feel fatigued and drained.
WHY IS GOOD FOR YOU…
According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), vitamin D deficiency in the UAE is one of the highest in the world, at 50-90 %. Adequate sun exposure helps prevent vitamin D deficiency. Aside the sun, foods such as dairy products and oily fish can also help boost the intake of Vitamin D. Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and in maintaining a strong immune function, helping to fight off infectious disease that would otherwise leave feeling fatigued and sick.
