Vitamin D and Sun health

Vitamin D and the sunBlack sun with rays️

Did you know that many of us are deficient in vitamin D? Some of the common symptoms of a VitD deficiency are: sadness, general fatigue, mood swings, stress fractures and suppressed immune function (sick often) 

So why are so many of us deficient? 
-over use of sunblock 
- not enough time outdoors
-living in cities where the tall buildings block the sun 
-diet lacking foods high in VitD

There are a few ways to ensure you are getting sufficient amounts of vitamin D! 
- expose yourself to the sun without sunblock during "non peek" hours like before 11am and after 3pm. Start with just a few minutes a day and build to avoid burning. 
-do not bathe with soaps after sun exposure. Wait until the following day to ensure good absorption of the vitamin. 
- consume fat soluble sources of VitD like Salmon, sardines, eggs (with runny yolk) raw milk or milk products from pasture raised animals, cod liver oil or you can use a vegan supplement like "the sunshine vitamin" sold at Upaya Naturals.
- you can use a topical vitamin D lotion like sun dew by Living libations during months or days where sun exposure unobtainable. 
- use a sun protective rather than a block like everybody loves sun by living libations. 

With exception to life on the deep ocean floor, all life requires the sun to grow and thrive. So love your sun!
