Vitamin D gets a lot of good press lately. Deservedly so. The vitamin helps boost immunity, helps build stronger bones and may help fight off cancer.
But because of the difficulty of consuming vitamin D in food, it’s important to get out into the sunlight for 15-20 minutes a day without sunscreen, when possible. Even though we’ve been told to avoid exposure to prevent skin cancer, it only takes a short amount of daily sun exposure to allow the skin to make enough vitamin D.
