Today’s Healthy Tip of the Week is about how Vitamin D is generated through our body’s exposure to the sun.

Join us this week to discover whether sunlight is the best source of Vitamin D.

  • One of the major benefits of the sun is Vitamin D production through UVB rays.
  • Vitamin D helps with bone development, bone growth and supports our immune system.
  • The basic recommendation to get Vitamin D from the sun is 10-15 minutes a day, at least 3 days a week.
  • Remember that, too much sun exposure can burn your skin.
