Practicing the Sun Salutation outdoors, facing the sun is still thought to be the most beneficial way to perform the routine as, according to “Yoga News,” the sun’s early morning rays nourish the entire endocrine system. Yogis also believed that the softer light of the early dawn strengthened eyesight, whereas the eyes would be damaged by the noonday sun. Of course, when practicing this kriya, it is not a good idea to stare intently at the sun. Also, while practicing the Sun Salutation outdoors you are absorbing vitamin D which will strengthen your bones and immune system. Yogis also thought that the sun’s rays acted like an antiseptic and that the body would be cleansed of harmful bacteria during the exercise.Now days people special who are vegetarian are facing Vitamin D deficiency issue.Suddenly you will realize how advance our ancestor have been , they all had identified the vitamin D related issue .How will they not only effect individual but society as whole.They even devised how to cure the deficiency .

Vitamin D serves several important functions in the body. These include:

  • Promoting calcium absorption
  • Maintaining normal calcium and phosphate levels
  • Promoting bone and cell growth
  • Reducing inflammation

Several factors have contributed to the rising incidence of vitamin D deficiency. These include:

  • Wearing sunscreen (sunscreen blocks the sun’s ability to stimulate vitamin D production)
    not spending enough time outside
  • Having darkly pigmented skin, which won’t absorb the sun’s rays as well
  • Exclusively breast-feeding babies for prolonged time periods
  • Being obese, which typically raises your vitamin D requirements

Vitamin D deficiency doesn’t always cause symptoms. When it does, some of the symptoms may include:

  • difficulty thinking clearly
  • bone pain
  • frequent bone fractures
  • muscle weakness
  • soft bones that may result in deformities
  • unexplained fatigue

Please be cautions if you any above mentioned symptoms go and check your vitamin D levels
