It is suggested that slathering on sunscreen may prevent Vitamin D from being absorbed through the skin by the sun. However, with rising concerns of skin cancers, some experts are suggesting breathable clothing made from hemp instead. Long sleeved shirts and pants made from hemp can still keep the body cool in sweltering heat and warm in cooler weather because the material adapts to body temperature, and should also allow Vitamin D absorption through the material.
Based on the findings from the study in the Journal of Adolescent Health, losing weight, it would seem, may allow the proper circulation of Vitamin D in the bloodstream. Additionally, losing the extra weight and increasing D levels may help reverse or control a lot of obesity-onset illnesses such as Type II diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and perhaps even some types of cancer.
