If you want an “A” in anti-aging this summer, don’t drop your vitamin D supplement just because it’s sunny outside. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that prevents rickets in children, maintains bone density in adults, may inhibit certain cancers such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and possibly lessens the risk of diseases such as multiple sclerosis. While it is true that sunlight stimulates the production of vitamin D, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends that you get your daily value of vitamin D from non-sun sources such as vitamin D–fortified organic milk, orange juice, salmon and other fatty fishes or a multivitamin.
The truth is, if you seek your vitamin D from the sun, you’ll soak up a whole lot more than you bargained for, including accelerated aging and an increased risk of developing skin cancer.
For best results stick with your supplement. We recommend a once-weekly dose of 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 to ensure your body is absorbing the appropriate levels of this powerful vitamin every day. When you are outdoors, protect your skin from damaging UV rays by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and applying and reapplying broad spectrum sunscreen products as directed.
