Vitamin D is often referred to as “the sunshine vitamin” as the sun is the greatest source of this nutrient.
Your skin hosts a type of cholesterol that functions as a precursor to vitamin D. When this compound is exposed to UV-B radiation from the sun, it becomes vitamin D.
According to the National Institute of Health, we should spend at least 30 minutes in the sun with exposure to our unprotected face, arms, legs or back between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Keep in mind sunscreen can block Vitamin D production). In most cases, doing this 3 times per week is enough for our bodies to produce the D3 it needs.
Vitamin D is also present in foods such as fish, eggs, dairy, soy and almond milks, but in less abundance.
Vitamin D intake is recommended at 400–800 IU/day, or 10–20 micrograms. Some studies suggest that a higher daily intake of 1000–4000 IU (25–100 micrograms) is needed to maintain optimal blood levels. It is best to check with your doctor to confirm what works best for you.
