There is no shortage of things people can do in order to live a healthier lifestyle. In fact, the frustration often lies in how much there is TO do, and not knowing where to start! If that is the case, start with these three fundamental factors and get started on the path to true health.
Vitamin D is crucial due to its miracle-class ability to halt cancer (77 percent of ALL cancers are prevented by vitamin D alone), to ease depression, boost bone health, improve brain function, enhance heart health, and much more. Nothing beats vitamin D in terms of the number of important health benefits derived from a single substance.
Even though vitamin D is often referred to as the sunshine vitamin, it is actually a neuro-regulatory hormone. This may explain why people experience mood swings, depression, and irritability when they are low on vitamin D exposure, such as the winter months or other areas which experience much less sunlight.
To maximize the absorption and storage of vitamin D, (it can be stored for up to three months) get in the sun and allow it to penetrate the skin for 15 to 30 minutes in peak hours of the day (the further north, and the darker the skin, the longer the exposure required), of at least the arms and legs. Vitamin D is NOT absorbed through glass, so get directly into the sun outdoors.
This means NO sunscreen before going out as it will block vitamin D uptake altogether. Take the time to soak up the suns rays, then get out of it or put on a non-toxic skin block or botanical formula.
If a vitamin D supplement is required due to lack of sun exposure, the best form after the sun is vitamin D3 in liquid form, paired with a source of vitamin K.
