Into 20 minutes of the show, the discussion about Vitamin D begins.
Being in the sun for about 20 minutes in shorts and t-shirt is the most effective way to top up your vitamin D levels. You can make over 20,000 units easily, which is over 20 times more than the recommended dose, that is too low anyway.
The darker the skin colour, the lower the amount of Vitamin will be absorbed.
In addition to Vitamin D, the sun also provides some nitric oxide and phyto-chemicals
An optimum level of 40 nanograms of Vitamin D in the body is ideal to help fight off viruses and illness. Vitamin D is important for immune system. According to current research, there is a 10-fold risk for picking up COVID if the level in the body is less than 20 nanograms.
Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, chronic inflammatory symptoms are some conditions that adversely affect levels of Vitamin D in the body.
The advice we have been given about being in the sun causes cancer needs to be clarified. Being in the sun is healthy. It has been shown that more sun exposure can lower melanoma. All one needs to do is ensure that one does not get burnt in the sun. 20 minutes a day is unlikely to cause burns unless the skin is very fair and sensitive.
It has also been shown that cutting out bad fats like vegetable oils, oils high in Omega 6, poly unsaturated oils, trans fats and replacing them with good natural fats like butter and saturated fat protects the skin from burning. The bad fats tend to oxidise and burn quickly. Some people who have switched to the low carb and healthy fat diets have found that where they used to get burnt in the sun, they don’t anymore.
The virus cannot be beaten - it can be controlled or suppressed, which means that it will still be around, possibly in a mutated form. This could mean that we could be faced with the same situation, as we have faced with the flu epidemic most years. The key is to improve immune health so that we have a defence system to help fight the virus and anything else that’s we encounter.
Eat real food - get some sun without burning - get healthy - save lives.
