Great Video on the Importance of Vitamin D

If you are an athlete, you sort of know that Vitamin D plays a role in whether you break a bone or not while training for your sport. The following is a great reminder to keep our Vitamin D levels in its normal range. Low normal is 31 so I prefer my athletes to be near 50 to stay out of trouble. Here is a pre-quiz for you based on the information in the video?

1. Vitamin D is metabolized by the kidneys. True or False
2. Sunlight typically destroys our Vitamin D stores, so we must take supplements. True or False
3. The active form of Vitamin D is 1,25 Dihydroxy D3. True or False
4. Salmon and other oily Fish along with Mushrooms are great sources of Vitamin D. True or False
5. The thyroid helps control the body’s manufacturing of Vitamin D. True or False
