Oklahoma: Vitamin D levels increasing – KOCO.com – KOCO Oklahoma City

Do you like vitamin D? Ok ok..who doesn’t? (BTW…Vitamin D is created when your skin is exposed to the sun)

Studies have shown that a deficiency in vitamin D often leads to depression. Which explains why we can sometimes feel “blah” in the winter months when the days are short and the nights are long.

Well..that’s all changing now. Since December 21st we have added about 30 minutes of sunshine to our days.

And the days continue to get longer and longer. Which means..happier days ahead!


The image above shows that we’re now adding roughly 1 minute and 40 seconds of daylight to the day before.

But look what happens in February.


Suddenly we’re adding over 2 minutes of daylight to each day. That’ll mean that in 1 month the sun will set around 6:30pm.

And that will mean almost 90 minutes of light added since the start of winter.

Yes Oklahoma…your ability to create vitamin D is increasing…and so is your happiness level :)
