Women throughout the Valley are discovering that their frequent fatigue is not just a result of stress or lack of sleep – it is actually linked to vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D is fortified in a variety of foods, but we get a majority of our vitamin D from the sun’s UVB rays. According to Scottsdale Holistic Health, sunlight exposure accounts for 90 percent of your body’s vitamin D levels. Simply living in a sunny state like Arizona does not guarantee that you’ll receive the proper amounts of vitamin D. In fact, many Arizona residents are at risk for vitamin D deficiency, as people have become more than diligent about protecting themselves from the sun’s rays.
It is true that excessive amounts of sunlight can be linked to skin cancer, but a mere 15 to 20 minutes in the sun without sunscreen protection can be good for you. There is no need to feel guilty about getting some sun on a Saturday, just do so in moderation.
