Take advantage of summer - expose 80% of your skin for 20 minutes daily between 11am-1pm without sunscreen.  This time of day is high in UVB rays that produce vitamin d in your body.  There are now organic sunscreens (found one on Amazon) if you must spend more time in the sun due to working outdoors.  Do not use sunscreens from the typical retail stores - they don't help, in fact, they harm your skin and your overall well being.

2nd way to get enough vitamin D - a sunbed.  They come in all price ranges.  Go to Amazon and check them out.  I've seen them priced as low as under $1,000.

The last way to get enough is supplements.  There is one other thing you need to be aware of if you choose to use an oral vitamin D supplement and that is that there are basically two types – one is natural and one is synthetic.

  • The natural one is D3 (cholecalciferol), which is the same vitamin D your body makes when exposed to sunshine

  • The synthetic one is vitamin D2, which is sometimes called ergocalciferol

Once either form of the vitamin is in your body, it must be converted to a more active form. Vitamin D3 is converted 500 percent faster than vitamin D2, and is clearly a better alternative.

Get your blood tested then get going and take good care of yourself!!

P.S.  There have been at least 4 books published since 2004 on this subject.  Don't let the political rhetoric of the past 30 years keep you out of the sun.  The sun is good for us!!
