We have been told about the damaging effects of the sun so many of us use UV sun protection. Years and years ago we were working outside in the sun not using UV protection. Our bodies were able to produce enough Vitamin D. In a short period of time we would be able to absorb between 10,000 and 20,000 IU’s of Vitamin D from working outside. So, we need sun. We are just not getting enough Vitamin D and Vitamin D is so important.
Vitamin D helps prevent abnormal cell growth, bone loss, osteoarthritis, and infection. It has also been found in research that Vitamin D is beneficial in preventing heart disease. Besides all of the important jobs Vitamin D has to offer the body, it has been found in recent studies that it can help fight and prevent cancer.
85% of our population is deficient in Vitamin D! Children can also be deficient, not just adults.
Even though the body is built to get Vitamin D through the skin, you also can get it through your mouth. Vitamin D super foods include salmon (especially wild-caught) or mackerel (especially wild-caught). Other sources include tuna, sardines, cod liver oil,
and egg yolks.
