Re: Vitamin D
Excellent question. I can tell you this much, which is all I know on the subject. A range of studies have shown that spending 15 minutes a day in the sun and exposing as much skin as possible (no I'm not advocating nude sun-bathing!) lowers BP by some measure...I forget the mechanism. I could be totally wrong but I think it has to do with the way the body absorbs it from the sun and in turn how it affects the ACE enzyme. I may be WAY off base and I apologize, but I do know that real evidence suggests sun-bathing (without overdoing it) lowers BP by at least some amount.
