For years we have been told to stay out of the sun or at least cover up so as to avoid skin damage. Well what we now know is that the cover up campaign has been too successful with vitamin D deficiency now the norm.
A recent Australian study found 1 in 3 deficient and 73% with ‘insufficient’ levels. But before you reach for the D capsules, did you know you can make heaps of D with just a little sun. Actually you can make as much as 20,000iu of D naturally each day. With Australian law capping vitamin D supplements at 1000iu that’s 20 capsules worth! With vitamin D useful in cancer prevention ( ironically ) and found in at least 30 different types of tissues in our body, a little sun every day and DONT GET BURNED is the best medicine ever.
