    Is exposure to the sun enough to get vitamin D?

    In a television interview, pediatrician, Dr. Marina Mamaeva, warned of a common mistake about vitamin D.

    The specialist indicated in a television interview, that “there are specific conditions that most people do not know, which is that vitamin D is produced by the body only in the case of movement. This is a law. That is, when a person is lying in the sun on the beach, this process does not help at all.” She adds that in order to produce vitamin D there must be active movement in the fresh air.

    Then it is sufficient to be exposed to the sun for 30-40 minutes a day to obtain the required dose of provitamin D, which the body converts to the “sun” vitamin. She notes that the body quickly consumes this vitamin, so it practically does not accumulate in the body.
