New Vitamin D Recommendations
Research shows that vitamin D may play a role in lowering the risk of certain types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, immune and infectious disorders, physical performance and some autoimmune diseases. Engage in outdoor activity whenever possible and let the sun work its magic. Just 20 minutes of direct sunlight (prior to applying sunscreen) will stimulate adequate vitamin D production in individuals under age 70.
