Shortest Day of the Year: Vitamin D - How to Get It When The Sun Goes Down
Date:12/20/2009

JUNEAU, Alaska, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Today is the shortest day of the year. During the dark winter months, sunlight can be an insufficient source of vitamin D which is vital for the absorption of calcium and phosphorous. Low vitamin D levels have recently been linked to a greater chance of developing diseases including diabetes and heart disease, several cancers and the common cold.

The good news is that there is a delicious and healthy, vitamin D rich food source, that's also one of American's top favorite seafoods: Wild Alaska Salmon.

Salmon is one of the highest natural food sources of vitamin D with 360 IU* (International Units) per 3.5 oz. Salmon often tops the list of "super foods" due to its heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which help prevent heart disease, inflammation, and certain types of cancer.

Salmon from Alaska

When it comes to salmon, not all are created equal. Alaska is home to the most abundant and healthy supply of wild Pacific salmon in North America. Never farmed, wild Alaska salmon offers unmatched flavor and texture. And as the only state whose Constitution mandates that all fisheries must be managed for sustainability, Alaska will have an abundance of wild salmon for years to come.

Wild Alaska salmon comes in a variety of forms including whole, fillets, steaks, canned, pouched and frozen.
