A recent study in England http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-15151930 found that some people with fair skin are not able to make enough Vitamin D from sunlight. Couple this with the fact that having fair skin means sun exposure puts you at risk for Cancer and some of us may want to take a Vitamin D supplement instead of sun bathing. Healthy levels of Vitamin D promotes Bone, Immune, and Colon Health. Because I live in a place that gets cold and dark in the winter as well as having fair skin, I take a multi-vitamin that has 1000 IU of Vitamin D each day. You can also ask your doctor for a blood test if you think you may be low on Vitamin D.
