I typically recommend vitamin D supplementation during cold and flu season. During the colder months there is less exposure to sunlight, which is a main source of vitamin D. It is recommended to be outdoors with most of your skin exposed for at least 15 to 20 minutes a day to receive enough vitamin D from the sun.29 November 2021
