Sun Protection to Help Prevent Skin Cancer & Anti-aging and Vitamin D Deficiency Solutions

We have all heard about the dangers of skin cancer and many people are aware of the aging effects of exposure to UVA rays.  For prevention, applying broad spectrum sunscreen on a regular basis is highly recommended to protect you from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.  Less exposure to the sun and dietary deficiencies can lead to Vitamin D deficiency.  One of Vitamin D’s most important roles in the body is keeping your immune system strong so you’re able to fight off the viruses and bacteria that cause illness and other physical effects.  Thankfully, Vitamin D deficiency is simple to correct.
