While too much sun can be bad for your health, so can too little. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that you get from natural sunlight. Most people spend the majority of their time indoors where there is no sunlight, so Vitamin D levels are often low. By getting a healthy dose of sunlight, you can prevent all sorts of health problems which are caused by Vitamin D deficiency. 

Health benefits of Vitamin D
* Decrease your chances of getting cancer
* Improve your heart health
* Improve your metabolism
* Strengthen your immune system
* Improve bone health
* Prevent kidney disease
* Regulates hormone secretion

Although sunlight exposure is the best way to naturally produce this vitamin, you may want to talk to your doctor about taking a vitamin D supplement.
