Vitamin D: think of vitamin D as your winter power-up, it plays a key role in keeping your immune system strong and bones healthy. But with less sunlight during winter, deficiency is common. Consider a vitamin D supplement, especially if you don't spend much time outdoors. Remember, even on cloudy days, soaking up some morning sunshine can be a great natural source!
