Really loving that the sun has been out the last couple of days. I don’t really notice the lack of it to be honest until it starts warming up and you can feel the warmth of the sun, its then that I start thinking about summer. We’re in for a great summer here on the Island, a new baby, a new house, and tons of family and friends planning on visiting us, its great!
Dr. Mercola – The ideal way to get vitamin D is by exposing your skin to appropriate sunlight. Unfortunately for most of us there simply isn’t enough sun exposure for nearly half of the year. However, even in the sun many of us are modern day cavemen and we spend the majority of the time the sun is out shining inside at work or in our home. Not many of us are regularly out in the sun. Sun exposure (without sunscreen) of about 10 to 15 minutes a day, with at least 40 percent of your skin exposed, is a general guide of how much you need, although people with dark skin will need to stay out significantly longer. Again, most of us struggle with seasonal vitamin D winters in which we may not be able to get enough sun exposure during certain parts of the year. It is important to understand that in the summertime, when you put on your bathing suit and sunbathe for 30 minutes, your body produces about 20,000 IUs of vitamin D — as much as exists in 200 glasses of milk, or the equivalent of about 50 typical multivitamins!
We as humans always think we know whats best, and that its most healthy to stay out of the sun or put lots of sun screen on, when in fact God meant it to be a source of nutrients for us, a part of a healthy lifestyle. As always, moderation is required. Isn’t it fascinating how God made our bodies to interact with photons from the sun? How would evolution ever figure that out? Makes no sense, God is great and this world we live in is intelligently designed.
