And a welcome relief for those of us who look to the sun to replenish and maintain our Vitamin D levels! You see, food or supplements are not the best source of Vitamin D (which is really a hormone, not a vitamin). It’s incredible that sunshine converts a form of cholesterol found in our skin into Vitamin D with the help of our livers and kidneys. What a beautiful design! Here’s how much unprotected sunshine you need.
Before you get tested or automatically purchase Vitamin D supplements, you may want to re-consider. Dr. John McDougall explains the risks of Vitamin D supplementation AND the over-exaggeration of ‘normal levels’ in his newsletter.

Don’t be afraid of the sun! Take caution not to burn, but don’t neglect the many health benefits of sunshine.
At every time and in every place—
from the moment the sun rises to the moment the sun sets—
may the name of the Eternal be high in the hearts of His people. (Psalm 113:3, The VOICE)
