Just "D" Facts about Vitamin D

Benefits of Moderate UV Sunshine Exposure

Antioxidants Prevent Sunburn

Posted by D3forU on July 18, 2010

Oral antioxidants prevent sunburn and cure chronic disease while using natural sunlight to manufacturer Vitamin D.

I love learning a new piece of information. It gives hope to those of us past any chance of a mid-life crisis. I was watching Mike Adam’s (The Health Ranger) video on Vitamin D and Sunshine (below) and two pieces of information caught my attention.

The first was Mike’s statement antioxidants in the diet protect the body from sunburn. He went on to tell a story about the early American colonists in the Southern colonies and how they would get sunburned necks during the summer. Mike explained this was caused by a lack of Vitamin B and other anti-oxidants in the colonist’s diet. For trivia experts that is where the term “Red Neck” originated.

Having never heard antioxidants in the diet protected one from sunburn my interest was tweaked. Thinking about my own experiences I had to believe Mike was correct. I have been on high levels of oral antioxidants for many years. I sun midday an hour daily during the summer. And, I have not suffered sunburn since I can’t remember when.

Doing a Google search the scientific studies were soon at hand supporting the information.

Potentials and limitations of the natural antioxidants RRR-alpha-tocopherol, L-ascorbic acid and beta-carotene in cutaneous photoprotection. Fuchs J. – Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, J.W. Goethe University, Frankfurt, German

Effects of oral vitamin E and beta-carotene supplementation on ultraviolet radiation-induced oxidative stress in human skin. Frank McArdle, Lesley E Rhodes, Richard AG Parslew, Graeme L Close, Catherine IA Jack, Peter S Friedmann and Malcolm J Jackson

Grinding Corn

So much information, in the form of scientific studies, is available that I am embarrassed to admit not recalling ever seeing the information that my diet could help prevent sunburn.

The second amazing fact was that Indians soaked their corn in lye or lime water prior to grinding to help in the extraction of the B-Vitamins. Again, Google made short work of finding scientific evidence supporting Mike’s remarks exactly.

The PDF file linked directly above is really quite fascinating. For those on raw food, growing your own vegetables, grinding your own meal and flour I suspect you already knew all about lye, lime and processing corn for nutrients. For those of you raised on American TV, like myself, the revelations should be interesting.

Ok, enough of an introduction. Watch Mike’s video and add several more pieces to the natural health equation. We not only treat and prevent cancer using Vitamin D but you have additional information on doing it safely using natural sunlight. – Pdazzler
