THREE UNDERRATED BUT POTENT VITAMINS!

Hey there, Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to let you in on a little secret of 3 super potent vitamins that are crucial for our health and wellness yet we often overlook them.

Can you guess what they are?

I'll give you a clue: They are all around you, do not cost a dime and are accessible at any time of day.

That's right! I'm talking about NATURE, FRESH AIR and SUNSHINE!

BUT FIRST, YOU'RE PROBABLY WONDERING WHY I'M TALKING ABOUT NATURE, FRESH AIR AND SUNSHINE AS VITAMINS?

LET ME EXPLAIN.....

     We are so conditioned to think that vitamins are something manufactured in a lab and that we need to purchase in a bottle at a store, that we forget to open our eyes and look all around us. Vitamins are everywhere!

     Nature itself is a multi-vitamin world but it's often the last thing we turn to for our vitamin fix simply because we are not conditioned to think of it as nutritious.

BUT IT IS!

SO WHAT ARE MY 3 MOST UNDERRATED YET MOST POTENT VITAMINS?

VITAMIN N = NATURE

VITAMIN FA = FRESH AIR

VITAMIN S  = SUNSHINE

     Did you know that instead of exploring the great outdoors the average American spends most of their time stuck in stale offices and dark living rooms?

     Even kids today spend 7 hours more inside and 2 hours less on outdoor activities per week than they did 12 years ago. Well unfortunately, all this indoor living is devastating our health!

     Research shows that children who get more Vitamin N, Vitamin FA & Vitamin S have lower stress levels, more success in school and fewer ADHD symptoms. And adults who exercise and socialize more in nature are happier people all around.

     We all know that simply being in sunlight triggers our skin to make vitamin D, (aka sunshine vitamin). Research has linked low vitamin D levels with depression, autoimmune disease, osteoporosis and cancer.

     To make sure you have enough Vitamin D, be sure to get at least 15-20 minutes outside without sunscreen. Why? Because sunscreen, high and low SPF factors, prohibits the body from making vitamin D by 95%.

     So in light of all this it is so important to get outside and get lots of nature (Vitamin N), fresh air (Vitamin FA) and sunshine (Vitamin S), these are super potent forms of food for our bodies!

How Can You Get More Vitamin N, Vitamin FA and Vitamin S?

     1) Make outdoor adult play mandatory. Splash in puddles, throw snowballs, pack a picnic lunch or catch fireflies.

     2) Take a 10-15 minute walk outside and drink in fresh air instead of coffee.

     3) Try gardening! Getting your hands in the dirt is actually good for you. There's a strain of bacterium in soil called Mycobacterium Vaccae, that has been found to trigger the release of serotonin, which in turn elevates mood and decreases anxiety.

     4) Move your kitchen outside. Fire up the grill and make fun creations such as fruit kebabs or if you have kids, let them personalize meats by brushing on sauces before cooking.

     5) Sleep under the stars. Even if camping without a bathroom isn't your thing, you can pitch a tent or put up a hammock in your backyard. And even if you are in the most urban environment where nature seems far away, the stars and the moon are your nature. 

A LITTLE DOSE OF NATURE NATURALLY BOOSTS YOUR MOOD AND MAKES YOU HEALTHIER.
