Happiness starts first thing in the morning when you get out into the sun. Natural sunlight helps promote the production of Vitamin D, which is also available as a dietary supplement. According to Health Canada, a full day in the sun can help provide up to 20,000IU of vitamin D. Researchers suggest that humans need at least 4000 to 5000 IU per day of vitamin D3 for optimal bone health, cancer prevention, cardiovascular function, auto-immune disease (i.e., MS, lupus, type 1 diabetes) prevention, muscle strength, and resistance to infection. In addition to its role as an essential source of good health, Vitamin D can also help improve the sense of well-being, improve sleep, reduce inflammation, and relieve depression, all of which contribute to happiness. High doses may very well relieve some of the negativity in your life. All of this explains why many of us tend to get sad and depressed during the winter months with limited sun exposure.
Happiness starts by getting out in the sun, without which makes us sad during the winter months. Vitamin D is produced naturally in the skin by sunlight and is also available as a dietary supplement. A day in the sun may provide up to 20,000 IU of vitamin D. In warmer weather, exposure of the arms, legs, and head for 15-30 minutes can provide several thousand IU of vitamin D. Just don’t apply sunscreen until you get your fill of this important vitamin. But don’t get burned in the process, because that is what’s linked to skin cancer. Scientists are now suggesting that upwards of 4000 to 5000 IU per day of vitamin D3 is optimum for bone health, cancer prevention, cardiovascular function, auto-immune disease (i.e., MS, lupus, type 1 diabetes) prevention, muscle strength, and resistance to infection. Unfortunately, the medical authorities are still recommending a paltry 400-800 IU daily. Vitamin D also helps increase the sense of well-being, improve sleep, reduce inflammation, and relieve depression, all of which contribute to happiness. High doses may very well relieve some of the negativity in your life.
