You make most Vitamin D midday
You make vitamin D mostly at midday! So are you out between 11 – 3pm? Because that’s the time UVB rays are at their peak! I am hardly outside between 11 and 3pm! Are you?
Sunscreen Blocks Vitamin D Production by 95%
Sunscreen blocks 95% of vitamin D production. SPF 30 pretty much blocks UVB rays, reducing the production of vitamin D. It’s about finding a fine balance between wearing sunscreen and producing vitamin D…..
There are many more factors that affect vitamin D absorption. These include:
-Weight (the more body fat you have, the more vitamin D you may require since Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin)
I urge you to ensure you are getting enough vitamin D. Just look at mother nature, she needs the sun to thrive! So do we.
