Get Outdoors!!

Did you know that the sun is our primary source of vitamin D? Without enough Vitamin D, our bodies become succeptible to a myriad of autoimmune disorders among which are Diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis and Hypertention.

Here in the sunny state of Arizona, about 15 minutes of full sun exposure a day will allow your body to produce sufficient Vitamin D. If you have dark skin, or live in a cloudy climate you may need more exposure or a Vitamin D supplement.
