Vitamin D3 - The Sunshine Vitamin!

Sunbathing up to 20 minutes daily should be prescribed in doctors offices

Vitamin D has strong antibiotic properties, and some studies indicate that optimal blood levels will prevent the flue far better than flu shots!

Your bare skin needs to be exposed to direct sunlight for at least fifteen minutes each day to produce enough vitamin D to meet the body’s daily needs. It is important to know that it is ultraviolet B (UVB) rays creating vitamin D. UVB light is the strongest between 10am and 2pm

All cells, tissues, and organs in the human body have vitamin D receptors, meaning that they await the arrival of the vitamin to perform various vital functions.

It is created under the skin by ultraviolet light. To get sufficient vitamin D, the body’s bare skin needs to be exposed to sunshine or we have to use supplements. It is important to note, that it is scientifically more beneficial to get this vitamin from the sun than it is from a supplement, plus it’s free!
