Sunlight and the Health Benefits of Vitamin D, and Exposing Yourself to the Sun

You should always ensure you go for a walk in the sun! This is very important especially people whose nature of work do not afford them the luxury of field or outdoor activities or exposure. Your body needs sunlight for it a veritable source of the essential Vitamin D which is also known as sunshine vitamin.

Enjoy nature and the sun

It is also very essential experts say for your calcium levels to up because certain minerals and vitamins tend to combine to enable you get the maximum benefits from them. It is also so very essential for the elderly to get this natural dose of goodies scientific research has revealed. Also experts reveal that as human beings, we make 90 percent of our vitamin D solely from natural sunlight exposure to our skin. This happens particularly, from ultraviolet B exposure to the skin, which naturally starts the conversion of cholesterol in the skin to vitamin D3.


Experts also say you are not to use your sunglasses or sun screens except it is extremely necessary, for instance if it is scorching sunshine. The importance of this is that the sun actually enters your system through your eyes and then stimulates energy in the entire body. It is therefore highly advisable for you to get a good amount of sunshine exposure like thirty minutes a day, minimum.

Exposure to or being in the sun promotes incredible health benefits for every human being. You must remember however, that it is the sun that gives the growth we see in plants. The sun power or solar energy that comes from the sun can be very alkalising to your body and as such it is able or has been known to lessen depression and it able to strengthen your immune system.

Rays of the sun are healthful

For instance, Professor George Ebers of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at Oxford University is one of a group of international scientists who believe Scotland's food should be fortified with vitamin D to try to cut the MS rate. This is evidence that there is low availability of this super vitamin owing to geography. The skies are mostly overcast or cloudy shielding off the vital rays of the sun from the people who need it.

Sunshine brings life & colour to nature

And so do not be misdirected by anyone saying you must keep away from the sun; on the contrary, the sun is good for you and it is absolutely free and needed for your health and wholesome living. Rather, the lack of Vitamin D can kill one very fast health scientists have said; it also causes rickets, even in a new born baby if the mother is deficient in this vitamin! And so as they say, the best things in life are free. Take the full advantage of the sun today.


But for best results experts say you should take advantage of the sun when it is not overhead or too harsh. So be sure to enjoy the early morning sun – say from 7 am to 10 am, and also before sun down as from 5 pm to 7pm.
