Vitamin D is a year-round issue
Due to the nutritional conditions and lack of sunlight, the vitamin D concentration in many people, is often less than 31 nanograms per ml (ng / ml) and thus below the minimum concentration required by therapists. On the other hand, experts in orthomolecular medicine recommend a healthy level of 40 - 60 ng / ml as the target for optimal and preventive care.
