Great Source of Vitamin D
One of the best ways to get vitamin D naturally is to enjoy a bit of sunlight. By helping maximize calcium absorption, vitamin D promotes bone and dental health. It can also elevate mood and reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more. Vitamin D also improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure by literally relaxing your blood vessels.

BACTERIA IN SOIL ALSO BOOSTS YOUR SEROTONIN LEVELS
Kicking up some dust or enjoying a stroll after the rain might be just what you need to unwind and boost those positive vibes. Nature’s calming effect comes from not only the fresh air but also the ground. Research done by scientists at the University of Colorado at Boulder shows that Mycobacterium vaccae, a harmless bacteria commonly found in soil, can act as a natural antidepressant by increasing the release and metabolism of serotonin in parts of the brain that control cognitive function and mood. The bacteria can also decrease inflammation in your immune system, thereby alleviating issues from heart disease to diabetes.
