Feeling a bit run down, rather stay in bed than getting up re-freshed ready to take on the day…?? You could be lacking Vitamin D this time of the year…. We recommended Vitamin D supplements to stop those cold aching joints and winter blues.
We have all been warned about skin cancer and the fact that you must wear suntan lotion when going out into the sun. But is all suntan lotion safe as we believe it is…???
One of the very vitamins that helps use from developing cancer is blocked by putting on sunscreen and sun lotions. Vitamin D is one that people are most deficient in–up to 70%–and having a deficiency in it can lead to disease and cancer. One of the ways we get vitamin D naturally is through sunlight exposure and putting on sunscreen blocks the bodies natural production of vitamin D.
Sun exposure is an easy, reliable way for most people to get their vitamin D requirements. Exposure of the hands, face, arms, and legs to sunlight two to three times a week for about one-fourth of the time it would take to develop a mild sunburn will cause the skin to produce enough vitamin D. (Exposure will vary with age, skin type, season, time of day).
