The sun will be happy to give you plenty of Vitamin D, but lots of people are deficient in Vitamin D. They stay inside most of the time and when they go out, they put sunscreen all over themselves! Drinking Vitamin D fortified milk is not the answer. You’d have to drink 300 eight ounce glasses of milk to get the same amount of Vitamin D as when you spend just 10 minutes outside in a bathing suit (no sunscreen). I’m not suggesting going outside and getting a sunburn. You definitely do not want to get a sunburn, but a 10 minute dose should give you enough Vitamin D without going overboard on the sun. If you’re afraid of the sun, take a Vitamin D supplement. I do in the winter time when the sun is not around as much as it is in the summer.
Vitamin D helps with a lot of systems in your body including assimilating cholesterol and helping with thyroid function especially for those suffering with Hashimoto’s Disease. Here a link to an article in NaturalHealth365 that has more info.
