Sun exposure may increase Vitamin D productionWe always find plenty of news about vitamin D. It’s quite easy to hear about a new study or recent report regarding this important vitamin. Moreover, the number of reports rapidly increases at this time of the year as the “D season” summer quickly approaches.

Most reports recommend that people should get outdoors and increase vitamin D production. Also called the “sunshine vitamin”, vitamin D can be produced when the body absorbs the sun’s UV-B rays.

Healthy levels of vitamin D may prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer but people do not seem to worry about this important element of our diet. Recent studies have shown that 77 per cent of Americans have insufficient levels of vitamin D.

Sun exposure does not need to be long to stimulate skin production of vitamin D. An average of 10 to 15 minutes, threes times a week should be plenty of time to produce significant levels. Don’t forget to protect your skin: always apply a reliable sun blocker. If you are concerned about skin cancer, don’t worry. Even for light-skinned people living in sunny hot areas, this short time exposure is not considered potentially dangerous for skin cancer.

If you don’t have the time to get outdoors or live in an area or the sun doesn’t shine, no worries once again. Vitamin D supplements can keep you in good shape.

A single tablet is sometimes all you need to meet your daily recommended intake of vitamin D. Products are also available in capsules, chewable tablets and liquid form.

    Recently I started taking Vitamin D supplementation in the form of liquid D3, after reading so many benefits over the last few months. It seems to be giving me a better energy level. In addition to heart disease and cancer as mentioned in this article, it is also said to help boost immunity, prevent osteoporosis, and possibly even help against Alzheimer’s.
