I've a got a great tip for you!
Sorry, it's hard not to feel upbeat when it's warm and the sun is shining. There is something about a glorious summer day that just naturally lifts the spirits.
I wonder how much of that is biologically hard-wired so we do want to go outside, because doing so is so positive for our health.
We all know how essential Vit D is for our bones and how it's synthesized by our body when our skin is exposed to sunlight.
But did you know that Vit D also protects the neurons in the hippocampus (responsible for memory). Or that it's important for serotonin regulation (one of our feel good hormones) and positively influences our cognitive skills.
Studies also show it can help prevent certain cancers.
So, even if you are struggling with the 5 a Day you can boost nutrients with a pina colada in hand ...
If you're in the Northern Hemisphere I apologise ;) We're not gloating (much).
