Vitamin D and Safe Sun Exposure
According to the Cleveland Clinic, 42% of the US population is vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D is created from cholesterol in your skin when it’s exposed to sunlight and is necessary for a strong immune system, mood regulation, and preventing an array of chronic health conditions. While the sun is a great way to naturally increase your vitamin D levels, practicing safe sun exposure is vital in order to offset the risk of developing skin cancer. In this class, Dr. Liz, N.D., from Allium Naturopathic Health will highlight the benefits and importance of vitamin D, how to increase your vitamin D levels with diet, as well as provide tips on safe sun exposure you can practice this summer.
