Dr. Berg: Good Luck Trying to Get Vitamin D from Sun

Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin because your body produces vitamin D when you’re exposed to direct sunlight. However, it can be difficult to get enough vitamin D from sunlight unless the conditions are just right.

In the right conditions, you can get 1,000IU of vitamin D from sunlight for every 10 minutes of sun exposure. [1.6 hours to get 10,000 iu – ed.]

But this is only if…
• You live close to the equator
• You’re young
• You’re not overweight
• It’s summer
• It’s midday
• You’re laying down
• You aren’t using sunscreen
• You have a healthy liver
• There are no clouds or pollution blocking sunlight
• You have no genetic defects
• You have no gastrointestinal damage
• You have a gallbladder
