The effect of sunshine…

Lavery_On_the_beachYou may have heard about a new study which has been reported as suggesting that sunshine can have a positive impact on your fertility. In fact, the study carried out by researchers at Edinburgh University, investigated the fertility of sheep on a remote Scottish island and found that the sheep with higher levels of vitamin D in their blood at the end of the summer had more lambs the following spring. Vitamin D is found in some foods, but is also produced in the skin after exposure to sunlight.

This isn’t the first study to link vitamin D and fertility,  but many of the studies have looked at animals. Although more research is clearly needed, it does seem that vitamin D may have a positive effect on fertility. You can read more about the new research from Edinburgh University here
