Hello lovelies, Welcome to another post on Vitamin D3 from the sun and its benefits to our skin but most importantly our body. As we are slowly going towards warmer temperature and sunny weather, there are things we should know as we embrace the SUN. Hope you enjoy part 1 of “Sunbathing”.

“The action of sunshine in the outdoors on the body is of such a nature that sun-baths have a triple significance- as a healing agent in the cure of disease, as a preventative to disease by building up body resistance, and as a sheer pleasure- giving tonic which increases the feeling of well-being”- Edgar Mayer, MD

The interaction of sun on the skin is our human form of photosynthesis. Sunlight in the form UVB rays touching the skin produces beneficial nutrients that our bodies require. Our skin converts sunbeams into regenerative substances of melanin, sulfur, and the steroid hormone, vitamin D. This distinct steroid hormone influences every cell in our body and is easily one of nature’s most potent champions. Think of Vitamin D as golden drops of sun fluid that we all need internally to be optimally well-oiled.132418_shutterstock_493498540The most natural and effective form of vitamin D is the type that we synthesize when our skin coalesces with the sun without sunscreen. The best time of the day to get the synthesize for vitamin D is morning to solar noon.Time variances, existing melanin levels, geography, and weather are all factors in how much shine one would need to get a good day supply of vitamin D. Our skin’s exposure to sun produces two types of essential sulfur: cholesterol sulfate and Vitamin D3 sulfate. Sulfur, cholesterol, and vitamin D produced in our skin from sun exposure are necessary for optimal cellular health while protecting us from radiation damage. Sulfur and cholesterol protect our DNA from radiation damage that contributes to cancer. They “ become oxidized upon exposure to the high-frequency rays in sunlight, thus acting as an antioxidant to take the heat. Vitamin D3 from supplements, which is un-sulfured and fat-soluble, is helpful, but it is not bonded to sulfur to make D3 sulfate. Vitamin D3 sulfate is water-soluble and moves freely in the bloodstream, providing a healthy barrier against bacteria; it is “ synthesized in the skin where it forms a crucial part of the barrier that keeps out harmful bacteria and other microorganisms such as fungi.”9If we avoid the sun, we are missing out on this natural disease protection. When we circumvent this natural process, either by using sunblock or staying out of the sun entirely, we give free rein to a variety of disease activities. UV rays are potent disinfectants; they hinder the growth of bacteria, fungi, and viruses.Nearly 75 percent of adults and teenagers are Vitamin D deficient, for two-decade-long slide. The Skin is like our solar panel, taking in the sun’s energy, and a lack of sunlight disturbs normal cell growth. Research attributes health issues to low levels of vitamin D, including heart disease, osteoporosis, juvenile diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and more. Vitamin D is designed to course through the body and facilitate various body function. It repairs organs, boosts immune functioning, and interacts with more than 2,000 genes. The sun, via Vitamin D, let the cells know when it is time to die; this healthy process is called apoptosis. Failure of apoptosis is one of the reasons for cancerous tumor development. When cells stop dying when they are supposed to, endless cell division occurs and cells pile up in a disorganized body system. Vitamin D ( along with vitamin K2) is essential for proper absorption of calcium and other minerals into the bones and teeth. It promotes efficient neuromuscular functioning and plays a role in anti-inflammatory processes. Thousands of vitamin D receptors ( VDRs) are found  in our skin, in places where the sun doesn’t shine, and in almost every single cell of our body, including the brain, breasts, bones, hypothalamus, prostate, pancreas, placenta, lymphocytes, heart, stomach, small intestines, colon, and more.SUNSHINE VITAMIN BENEFITS:
