You body is an amazing product of evolution. Every single one of your 7 trillion cells has a vitamin D receptor. (Wow!) As I mentioned earlier, your skin produces vitamin D every time you’re out in the sun. It is therapeutic and calming to lay out and enjoy the heat of the sun. If you don’t have special risks a little sun exposure is healthy. Our bodies produce 10,000 to 25,000 IU of vitamin D before the skin starts to pink or bronze. This can mean as little as 15 minutes in the sun for someone with fairer skin.
I am all about protecting your skin from over exposure, but a little goes a long way for your vitamin D levels!
>> Did you decide to add a vitamin D supplement? I remember feeling my energy lift after first starting my “D” (my levels were super low). Have you noticed a difference in your mood, energy levels, or thickness of your hair? Let me know in the comment section below!
