Soak up the sun with Natural Solutions
With summer weather here, the sun is out for longer periods of time during the day allowing us to get all the vitamin D we need. How do we know how much time in the sun is okay for our skin? Does vitamin D have to come directly from the sun? Can you overdose on vitamin D? These are all questions that we are here to help you answer.
From its discovery in the early twentieth century as a cure for rickets, a syndrome characterized by malformed bones, vitamin D was just another vitamin. In 1980 all that changed when Dr. Michael Holick solved the mystery of how this nutrient is produced by our bodies in the skin. Since then, research has expanded our understanding of vitamin D, but the discovery is not yet complete. Hundreds of studies concerning the effects of vitamin D are now released annually. Get to know your vitamin D levels and manage your intake to maintain a healthy life.
