Good Morning, Sunshine!

At a recent doctors visit I learned that many people have vitamin D deficiency. One of the most natural sources of vitamin D is sunshine. Your body does not naturally create vitamin D, it was designed to make it through sun exposure - UVB rays to be exact. We've all been drilled to stay out of the sun due to skin cancer concerns, and rightly so. Be smart and wear sunscreen as directed and limit your time in direct sun especially during peak hours in the middle of the day. You do need a bit of sun time to recharge your vitamin D batteries and just 15 minutes a day will help boost your levels naturally. A little bit will do ya!
