Hi, Our body creates most of our vitamin D from direct sunlight on our skin using cholesterol.
Short daily periods of sun exposure without sunscreen during the summer months (April to October) are enough for most people to make enough vitamin D. Evidence suggests that the most effective time of day for vitamin D production is between 11am and 3pm.
Consumption of large amount of supplements could be harmful...
