Here are a few important things you need to know about vitamin D and your skin color.

0:00 Vitamin D and skin color
0:10 Melanin
0:30 Skin type
1:33 Vitamin D
2:35 Testing your vitamin D levels

Today let’s talk about vitamin D and skin type. The pigment in your skin (melanin) has an interesting function of acting as a filter for UV light. So it could potentially prevent the harmful rays that could cause cancer. So, the more melanin you have in your skin, the more protection you may have against skin cancer.

The darker the skin, the more melanin, the more natural sunscreen a person has to protect against UV light. But, people who have more melanin may have a greater risk of having a vitamin D deficiency. They might need three to five times more vitamin D than someone with much less melanin.

Also, if you have liver or kidney problems, you may not be able to convert the pre-vitamin D (the inactive form) to the active form of vitamin D that you need.

Most tests only check for the inactive form of vitamin D and not the active form of vitamin D. If you have a liver or kidney problem, and your vitamin D levels appear normal, know that the test could be misleading.

But, there is a home kit that you can get to measure your vitamin D levels. The company agreed to give my followers a 20% discount for this kit. Just use the code: drberg20. They have other interesting tests available on their website as well.
