Could sunshine lower your cholesterol levels?

The answer is a resounding “yes!”

And I’m Dr. Jack Wolfson, board-certified cardiologist and I want to tell you that the sun gives us so much healing benefit.

But let’s talk in particular about sunshine and cholesterol levels.

So, the body makes cholesterol naturally. It does so many different things in our body and I talk about this of course in my book and on my website. But cholesterol is important, but we want just the right amount for us to get the job done.

Well, as the body is making cholesterol, before it becomes cholesterol, it’s another molecule named 7-Dehydrocholesterol. It’s almost there but before it gets to cholesterol, if the sun hits it, it becomes vitamin D.

And we all know that the people with the highest levels of vitamin D have the lowest risk of just about everything.

So, what happens is if we don’t get enough sunshine we’re not going to turn it into vitamin D and therefore we have excess cholesterol.

That’s why people that live farther away from the equator, people that are away from the sun, have higher cholesterol levels and higher cardiac risk.

So, get sunshine today.

Instead of making excess cholesterol, make that excess vitamin D.

Live longer. And live healthier.
