Vitamin D3 is water soluble.
There is a commonality, although it is not that obvious at first glance.
First, consider that we have two oceans of water inside our body. One outside our cells and one inside our cells. Our organs, including our skin, work best when they are properly hydrated and properly nourished with essential minerals.
Why would someone who spends a lot of time in the sun not have a lot of vitamin D? What if they were dehydrated on the cellular level and they could not produce the vitamin D in their skin? It would certainly provide a viable theory for the low numbers.
Finally, why does following the water cures help so many with depression and why does it help so many different kinds of depression? For vitamin D3 to work effectively, we need to be properly hydrated.
