The Sunshine Vitamin




Did you know that in addition to the proper metabolism of calcium and good cardiovascular health that Vitamin D plays an important role in boosting your immune system? We are only just beginning to scratch the surface of all the things that Vitamin D does for us. You can put the strongest man in the world into a darkened room and he will become weaker and weaker and progressively weaker. Vitamin D is also important for proper hormonal function. If you do not get enough sunlight you may become depressed.


New research shows that our immune cells have vitamin D receptors. This means that getting enough vitamin D may be critically important to support our immune system health. Most of our vitamin D comes from the sun. We all need to spend at least 30 minutes a day in the sun wearing as little clothing as possible. The safest times to go out is when your shadow is longer than you are tall. Avoid being in the sun when your shadow is shorter than you are tall unless your skin is already very well adapted to the sun. Never do we want to burn.


According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Health Statistics, about one-quarter of the US population is at risk of not having enough vitamin D. Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to fatigue, aches and muscle weakness, among other problems. If you live anywhere north of Jacksonville, Florida it is not possible to get enough sun exposure in the wintertime no matter how much time you spend outside. In some cases supplementation may be helpful. Not all Vitamin D supplements are created equal.
