Vitamin D - Sunshine For Health

Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin for good reason, and recently there's been a lot of interest in it's health benefits.

Research studies now validate that vitamin D offers a plethora of health benefits, possibly protecting against heart disease, many forms of cancer, immune system disorders such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and the flu, and perhaps mental illnesses including schizophrenia and depression.
"Vitamin D has a global effect on many systems," said Bruce Hollis, a professor of pediatrics, biochemistry and molecular biology at the Medical University of South Carolina.

Health Care Professionals now suggest a natural approach to increase vitamin D with old fashion leave the indoor activities behind and get outdoors for a stroll in nature or simply sit in the sun.
There are many benefits to daily sun exposure.

Researchers share mounting evidence that sun exposure early or late in the day for 20 minutes is needed for good health.

New evidence suggests we not shower with soap immediately after sunbathing. Use soap on the areas not exposed to the sun because soap damages vitamin D3 if it is used within 48 hours.

Personally I try to spend 30 minutes 3 times a week between 9-10 am or 3-4 pm.

If you desire to spend longer periods of time in the sun please review these natural sunscreens.
