Vitamin D shouldn't really be called a Vitamin, it is actually a pro-hormone which has many uses in the body. Increasingly over the years we have
shyed away from the sun slopping on that sunblock reducing the amount of Vitamin D your body can produce by 95%.
Now our bodies can only properly synthesis Vitamin D with the following criteria:
Natural oils on skin (e.g showering with soap will lower absorption until natural oils are produced onto your skin once more)
The UV rating must be 3 or over
The sun should be facing down on you, time-slot around 11AM-3PM to absorb it the most efficiently.
More time required in sun to absorb if you have darker skin or are living at a higher latitude away from the equator
(At the middle of summer at mid day a pale-skinned person can produce 1000IU of Vitamin D per MINUTE where as the RDA is 400)
The cases of Vitamin D deficiency are going up and up and are a cause for lethargy, increased cancer rates, illness, osteoporosis and more. As
previously stated the pathetically low RDA is set at 400 whereas if in the winter months (also assuming you go out and absorb those sun rays in the
summer) it would be best to supplement with 5000IU/day or most days in the form of D3 (NOT D2)
Although this website does have links to selling Vitamin D3 it does cite many, many references and links to Vitamin D on the left hand side.
Important note: When taking Vitamin D3 it would be wise to supplement with some magnesium as it is used up in the synthisation of Vitamin D
in the body, and also eat sprouts, collards or Kale as they contain Vitamin K which aids Vitamin D hugely and prevents anything going wrong with the

no sun block for me!!! i like the sun and all it's benefits. i haven't even had a sunburn!
i do not lay in the sun to get a tan. i never understood that.
i'm usually doing yars work or gardening in the sun.
as for the shower thing, the worst thing you can do is shower daily or more (unless you sweat all day at your job of coarse!) you wash essential oils
off of you,and your protective 'film'. more chance of getting sick.

You'll find just a couple of foods ingredients that may contain natural vitamin D. A number of nutritional resources of vitamin D are usually meat

latest Vitamin D news
on account of minimal nutritional absorption of vitamin D loaded food items. Breastfeeding youngsters gets this issue since vitamin D quantities in
mother milk is incredibly reduced.
Contact with poisonous ingredients, dangerous substances, unwanted effects of a number of medications may also cause this type of problem which the
levels of vitamin D runs beneath the typical amount. Bodily issues for instance tone of the epidermis or perhaps amount of whole body fat can also be
to blame for low-level vitamin D. Darkish complexion may also be the explanation of reduced vitamin D values inside the entire body.
My grandmother said that "without a few skint knees, eating some dirt, and lots of fresh air and sunshine"... a child will not grow up healthy...
now we see that she was right.
I finf it ironic that something so easy to fix is a problem for many people. Go outside... and play or work or do something. Heck, put the TV and
video games on the back porch along with the couch...aka redneck style.
If I tan outside, it's in full noon day (or near noon) sun and definitely without any of that nano-laced sunblock.
So stupid that people will pay money to go into a tanning bed when there's the real deal for free out every damn day. They prefer things to be taken
