Many of you will already know of the health benefits derived from sitting in the sunshine for 15 – 20mins every day.  
These include increased levels of vitamin D and higher serotonin levels, especially if you remove your sunglasss for the period.   Now higher levels of serotonin leads to an improved sense of wellbeing which I guess you dont need telling as we all know how the sunshine can make everyone feel more cheerful.  But it also has been shown to help to kill off candida.  Some studies have shown that serotonin has anti-fungal properties and has been shown in labs to kill yeast and candida.  If you live in areas which get less sun then you may want to consider supplementing with Vitamin D (I take krill oil) and 5HTP.   If you want to learn more about 5HTP and its benefits go to my website at and scroll down. 
Right I’m going to have a coffee and sit in the sunshine!

    I agree small amounts of sunshine are a great source of vitamin:)! But to be out in the heat of the day is not good for candida sufferers! Speaking from experience, heat can also make candida grow. Just think when you are trying to get bread (yeast) to rise, the same thing is happening in your body! Personally I am sick for days, if out in the heat for long…candida symptoms are much worse!!

      Hi Pam

      Good point! I dont want to make people feel worse 🙁 Everything in moderation I guess.

    I think everyone is different. Ive had candida and thrush infections for a long long time and sitting in the sunshine always makes me feel better. It doesnt make my symptoms worse at all. I guess everything in moderation. Also I live in the north so we dont get really warm too often! lol!
