Vitamin D and Your Immune System
It has now been determined that Vitamin D is, in many ways, more powerful, than any vaccine you could take. Vitamin D increases your immune function while dramatically stimulating the production of potent anti-microbial peptides. Vitamin D from sun exposure is the best way to optimize your vitamin D levels and thereby reduce your risk for a wide range of diseases.
Most people work indoors,and when not working, do not spend enough time enjoying outdoor recreation.Occasional sunlight exposure to your face and hands is insufficient for vitamin D nutrition for most people. To optimize your levels, you need to expose large portions of your skin to the sun, and you may need to do it for more than a few minutes.
How do you get enough vitamin D if it’s so important to your body? So to use the sun to maximize your vitamin D production and minimize your risk of skin damage, the middle of the day (roughly between 10am-2pm) is the best and safest time. During this UVB intense period you will need the shortest sun exposure time to produce the most vitamin D. As far as the optimal length of exposure, you only need enough to have your skin turn the lightest shade of pink. If sun exposure for your is not an option, we have Vitamin D Standard Process supplements in the office that you can take orally.
