Health Tips – 9. Get your daily dose of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential for preserving muscle tissue.

Get 90 percent of your recommended daily intake (400 IU) in a single serving of serving of salmon. Other good sources: tuna, fortified milk and cereal, and eggs… and don’t forget SUNSHINE!

A minimum of 20 minutes of sunshine per day is just what the doctor ordered (not necessarily the midday sun, remember to ‘slip, slop, slap, slurp, and slide…’)
