Vitamin D deficiency likely due to sunscreen use, increase of chronic diseases

By now you have probably heard that getting enough sun is important, because it is a natural source of Vitamin D. You have probably also heard that you should wear sunscreen if you’re going to be out in the sun, to avoid the harmful effects of too much sun. Those two messages can sound contradictory and confusing, and they are in fact! As it turns out, a new study has found that nearly 1 billion people worldwide may have deficient or insufficient levels of vitamin D due to chronic disease and inadequate sun exposure related to sunscreen use. The study also found that 95 percent of African American adults may have vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency. Vitamin D variations among races are attributed to differences in skin pigmentation.

Vitamin D (which is technically a steroid hormone) receptors are found in every cell in the human body. It’s main function is to help the body absorb calcium, which forms and maintains strong bones. Vitamin D may also protect against osteoporosis, high blood pressure, cancer, and other diseases. So it is clearly a crucial component of good health. The question becomes how to make sure you get enough, without putting yourself at risk of skin cancer and other sun related ailments.

You might think that foods fortified with Vitamin D mean you are getting all that you need, but the truth is most fortified foods don’t offer a therapeutic level. While they are better than nothing, the best way is sun exposure. A good rule of thumb to follow is about half the time it would take you to get a mild sunburn. That can be tricky to figure out, start with about 15 minutes of direct sunlight a day. If you don’t get sunburned, work your way up to about 30 minutes day. As far as sunscreen goes, SPF 30 is as high as you should go, anything else is a waste of money at best, and harmful at worst.

There are some caveats to that however, the darker your skin, the more difficult it is to get the benefits from the sun. Also if you are overweight. Being a fat-soluble hormone means that the more body fat you have, the more Vitamin D your body will “collect” more, and it will not get utilised by your body. Also people with gut issues, such as Crohn’s disease, celiac, and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, have issues absorbing fat and getting fat soluble vitamins.  Finally, people 50 years and older don’t convert vitamin d as well as younger people.

If you know you fall into one of the above risk groups, or that you will not be getting adequate sun, Vitamin D supplements are one of the best methods for making sure you are getting the necessary amounts. As a general guideline adults need about 8,000 IUs per day. If you do opt for a vitamin D supplement, you also need to boost your intake of vitamin K2 through food and/or a supplement. 


Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for maintaining normal calcium metabolism. Vitamin D3  (cholecalciferol) can be synthesized by humans in the skin upon exposure to ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation from sunlight, or it can be obtained from the diet. This dietary supplement helps promote the body’s absorption of calcium and phosphorous, which are essential for the development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones.
