Our skin has its own form of photosynthesis – converting sunbeams into a healing and regenerative substance, a steroidal hormone precursor, called vitamin D. Skin has the ability to create over 10, 000 IU of vitamin D after 15 minutes of being in the sun at noon and vitamin D is responsible for over 2000 functions to work optimally in the body. Vitamin D3, in the form of calcitriol is a powerful hormone that can activate over 2000 genes in the body. It is import for blood to have optimal levels of vitamin D and what many people may not know is vitamin D is also fundamental for the health, beauty and cellular harmony of your largest organ, the skin. The skin’s cellular renewal process is dependent upon vitamin D. There are many factors that can inhibit your body’s production of vitamin D including, geographic latitude, seasons and use of synthetic sunscreen.
