Vitamin D3: The Sunshine Vitamin

Do you get 10-15 minutes of exposure to sunlight everyday? If not, you probably have a deficiency of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is naturally produced in your skin from cholesterol when you are exposed to the ultra violet (UV) frequencies found in natural sunlight. Unfortunately, many people get very little exposure to natural sunlight, wear sunscreen or otherwise don't get enough exposure to UV light.  As a result, as high as 90% of the population of North America wind up deficient in vitamin D3, especially during the winter months.
