The power of the sun

Absorbing good ol’ sun ☀️ {vitamin D}
Please read below for great info and the reason why I share this is because SO many people, even us living in Hawaii where there is year round sun, are deficient. Vitamin D deficiency is the cause of MANY diseases even cancer.
FACT- vitamin d is not actually a vitamin but a prohormone. I’ll share with you the process of how UVB rays from the sun keep you healthy-
➡️unprotected (no sunscreen, especially chemical ones or clothing)body exposed to sun
➡️body absorbs UVB rays which starts a chemical reaction- the prohormone (sun)is converted to vitamin D
➡️a form of cholesterol that’s already on your skin is then converted to vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)
➡️this travels to your liver where it’s metabolized and becomes the form-hydroxyvitamin D or 25 (OH) D
➡️then your kidneys convert it to 25(OH)2D a form that your body can use to keep you healthy.
Super scientific but understandable. Point is you should be getting 90% of your vitamin D from the sun and if you live somewhere where you don’t have much then supplementing is necessary. I live in HI and I was deficient. Women who have had children are more likely to be. The SUN is not bad for you like so many people think. Staying in the sun and burning your skin is. You should get at least 10min per day of sun that is shining directly on your face and body without sunscreens. If you stay in longer then use chemical free sunscreens. So if you have any type of chronic illness, check your D levels, it’s likely you could be low. When supplementing make sure it’s a clean form of D3. I have two vitamin D supplements I recommend is great and you can check it out Here:
