If your body lacks vitamin D, you may feel tired, have weak bones and be more likely to become sick. While you can take supplements, the best way to produce vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. Take advantage of the sunlight as much as you can with suitable window blinds. For example, aluminium shutters allow you to control how much sunlight enters your home. When the sun is shining, open up the shutters to allow sunlight into your home and increase your vitamin D production.
