Making sure that the body has the vitamins and minerals it needs is a good way to ensure you are functioning at your best. If you are trying to drop a few pounds and jumpstart your metabolism and are struggling, the problem may be with your diet. 

Incorporating the right vitamins and minerals into your daily routine, at the right times, may provide you with the boost you need to speed up your metabolism and drop those stubborn unwanted pounds. There are several vitamins and minerals that can help to get you on track, but one of the most important vitamins to take every morning may be vitamin D. 

Studies suggest that ensuring you have enough vitamin D could enhance weight loss and decrease body fat; the proper balance of vitamin D is linked to a reduction of fat cells in the body, and to aid in serotonin production which will help to control appetite and increase satiety. 

The best way to get the vitamins and minerals your body needs is through your diet, foods such as salmon, eggs, yogurt, tuna, cod liver oil, and mushrooms can help you to get some of the vitamin D your body needs but the best source of natural vitamin D is sunshine. 

Water soluble vitamin D supplements are also available and may help to give your metabolism a little boost in the morning. For those with a busy schedule, you may want to consider to try taking one on an empty stomach before eating a healthy breakfast to help you stay fueled throughout your morning. 

As always it is recommended to consult with your physician to ensure what is right for you, your physician will be able to help you decide what is the best plan of action for your health and wellness, in which vitamin D may be able to help you jumpstart your body’s calorie burning ability.
