Say Goodbye To Vitamin D Deficiency

Do you know that it is incredibly important to get some sun on your skin on a daily basis? Whether you’re wearing a boy's swimsuit to your favorite beach to get a day’s worth of sun, or you are eating lunch at the park during your work break, sun is important to everyone. But why? Exposure to sun is a sufficient supply of vitamin D.

We all love sunlight. It keeps us warm, browns our skin to make us feel sexy and boosts our body’s vitamin D supply. In fact, according to the NIH, at least 1,000 different genes that control every tissue in the body are linked for regulation by vitamin D3. So it’s important to note that vitamin D produced by your skin’s response to ultraviolet radiation is primarily through exposure to the sun, which affects 10 percent of human genes found within the body. In another study, researchers completed vitamin D screenings on nearly 500 kids that had been admitted at a pediatric hospital for over a year. Studies revealed that two in five kiddos had a vitamin D deficiency. They came to the conclusion that this was due to a prolonged hospital stay that was indoors without sunlight. So remember, a healthy supply a vitamin D will help your body stay strong and promote bone growth. It will also prevent diseases such as colon cancer, breast cancer multiple sclerosis, depression, inflammation responses and seasonal disorders.

What are you waiting for? After learning how exposure to the sun can help you live long and prosper, it’s time to buy a new boys swimsuit and get out there in the sun!
