I was always told to drink my milk as a kid to have strong bones. Little did I know just how important that milk, and the Vitamin D would be as I got older.
As a child, you don't really think about Vitamin D, aside from the times you mom or dad told you about just how important your vitamins are and that you won't grow up to be "big and strong" without them.
I'm not 36 years old, and I have a serious lack of Vitamin D, and I'm feeling the effects of it. Makes me almost wish I would have stayed drinking my milk. But as someone who grew up and can't have milk or anything of that ilk (lactose intolerant), you'd be hard pressed to find enough Vitamin D now that regular milk or any dairy is off the table.
That thinking is incredibly short sighted given just how important Vitamin D is and that you must have grown up and not heard that you can take your vitamins without correlating them with a food or drink to get them.
Supplements are paramount to getting enough Vitamin D as you can supplement that lack of dairy with a, well, supplement that you can take on a daily basis.
