We know Vitamin D is so important for PCOS and insulin resistance, but how do you get it?
While you can take a supplement (which is great if needed) exposure to direct sunlight and some foods can help increase your levels as well!
First, try getting some good old sunshine. Try getting about 20-30 mins of sunlight every day.
During the winter months when it is hard to get adequate sunlight, it is important to make sure you are supplementing with vitamin D. Also, the use of sunscreen can also affect the amount of vitamin D that is absorbed.
You can also get vitamin D from some foods like fatty fish and vitamin D fortified foods like milk, cereals, and orange juice. Lastly, you can get vitamin D from supplements.
Make sure to talk with your doctor about testing your Vitamin D levels and if supplementation is a good option for you!
