Shedding New Light On Vitamin D

The launch of Vitamin D Day and the new vitamin D ad featuring Ellie Krieger is part of a new initiative to shine the spotlight on the problem of vitamin D deficiency. Eighty-eight percent of Americans believe they get the vitamin D they need from the sun, according to a recent survey(1) commissioned by the National Milk Mustache "got milk?" Campaign. For most people, vitamin D is not even on their radar screen. Seventy-five percent are not sure how much vitamin D they need and there is significant confusion about where to find it - 23 percent believe exercising regularly will increase their vitamin D and one in five Americans believe a good night's sleep will replenish their vitamin D.

GetYourD.com is a new Web site to help correct the country's D deficit. Learn more about the scientific studies that document vitamin D's wide range of health benefits. Visitors will also find a quick quiz to see if they are "D-prived" and get some bright ideas on how to up their intake. Tips and recipes from Ellie Krieger also are provided, and the site offers a chance to win a free year's supply of liquid sunshine.

About the National Milk Mustache "got milk?(R)" Campaign
