    Supplements, Not Sun, for Vitamin D

    SCHAUMBERG, Ill.—Consumers are better off getting their vitamin D from the diet and dietary supplements versus unprotected exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, according to a new statement from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). C. William Hanke, MD, president of AAD, noted: “Vitamin D is essential for optimal health, and the medical literature supports safe ways to get it—a healthy diet which incorporates foods naturally rich in vitamin D, vitamin D-fortified foods and beverages, and vitamin D supplements.” The group added the Institute of Medicine (IOM) guidelines provide insight into appropriate intake levels, but added higher doses of vitamin D may be needed for individuals with known risk factors for deficiency.

    dont forget that your body stores D in the subcutaneous fat layers of the skin and can only become activated when in contact with certain UV light rays. Supplemental D must first be converted to the specifically stored form and will only become active after sun exposure.
