Value Your Vitamins D3

Vitamins

Despite the name, vitamin D is considered a pro-hormone and not actually a vitamin.⠀

Vitamin D can be synthesized by our body when sunlight hits the skin. ⠀

15-20 minutes 2-3 times a week allows most people to produce sufficient amounts of vitamin D. ⠀

The only downside is that is breaks down quickly, meaning stores can run low.⠀

Especially if your someone that is inside all day or during the winter times.⠀

My typical recommendation for a client is 15-30 minutes daily to just stay ahead of the game.⠀

Or you can supplement 2,000-5,000 IUs daily if your unable to get out side. ⠀

Vitamin D and the sun have been market to us as this cancer causing death trap the should be avoided at all costs.⠀

And yes while to much of anything can be bad, vitamin D and the sun play a vital role in our overall health and longevity.⠀

Deficiencies in vitamin D can cause serious side effects and can lead to chronic disease.⠀

I always recommend the holistic rout and to get your vitamin D natural from the sun. ⠀

But whatever your method of getting it is. Don’t neglect the power the sunshine vitamin can have on your overall health and fitness. ⠀
