Vitamin D is one of the only vitamins that is naturally produced by the body, however this only happens when we are exposed to sun for an adequate amount of sunlight. Generally about one hour a week should be enough. As we age, we tend to produce less vitamin D even with a certain amount of vitamin D.
Vitamin D contributes to joint and bone health as it helps with the absorbtion of calcium. It can slow the affects of arthritis and lessen back pain. It has been known to prevent certain types of cancer such as breast cancer. People of color do not absorb the same levels of vitamin D as the rest of the population due to the high melanin content in the skin. (Melanin is what gives the dark color in the skin).One of the results is that people of color have a 500% increase in breast and cancer rates over the rest of the population and they are not being educated about this fact.
Some sources of Vitamin D are:cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel, tuna fish, sardines, fish, egg (vitamin D is in egg yolk), beef liver.
