30 Bananas a Day!

Just making a blog post about dehydration.  I did post a full discussion on the effects of dehydration 1-2 years ago, but recently stumbled across some more information I do not recall reading before.  Thought I would post it here to share, as well as have it in a central location for my future reference.

Most of you are probably aware that vitamin d is not a true vitamin, but more of a hormone, steroid hormone.  I know personally, I have had a low vitamin d level for quite some time, despite my consistency in getting out in the sun daily and for a great deal of time.  What I just read is that our bodies cannot make vitamin d if it is dehydrated on any level - outside or inside our cells.  Many people around Hawaii often have low vitamin d despite their living in one of the best locations for good sunshine.  

Basically, what I read is that the body cannot produce ample vitamin d when not properly hydrated.  And, for many people, vitamin d is a problem.  Low d causes several symptoms (read my discussion from 1-2 years ago) and dehydration could actually be a root cause of the low vitamin d. 

I remember getting my vitamin d tested in July of 2014 and my level was barely at 20, despite just getting back from a beach vacation.   I used to get heart palpitations after being in the sun for 10+ minutes.  I always thought it was normal.  Sounds like I have been dehydrated at the cellular level for quite some time.  I remember the heart palpitations being in the sun as far back as the summer after high school, and I am not a young pup anymore.  :)

Wow!!! this makes so much sense!!! again both you and I had the same background and symptoms! I must have been dehydrated at a cellular level also. Interesting that it took 3 years for my levels to come back up and I was consistently hydrated in that time! great info!

Wow, thanks for this info! After spending all summer soaking in the sun last year, me levels also tested severely low. What a bummer. So if we are hydrated can our bodies make enough D even with poor UV quality? Like in the northern US?
