    That's the UV Wavelength for the Sperti D above. The Sperti D is a Vit D lamp. You make Vit D when the wavelength is between 280 and 315 nm, see the range above. The Sperti Fiji is predominantly UVA , 70 - 75% UVA and 25 - 30% UVB (315 to 400 nm), so you will still make some Vit D with it. Sperti Fiji is mostly used for tanning because of the high UVA. UVA also has it's numerous benefit, but if it's D you're after, then the Sperti D is more effective at that.

    [q uote="Dia, post: 203725, member: 11720"]Congratulations !!

    That was beautiful and poetic.

    There is also:

    Nature's definition of what perpetual is, is tied to life and death cycle.
    Where life is not rarely extinguished because it is passed on from generation to generation.
    This way, life is perpetual motion machine. 59:35

    How are you addressing your vit A needs?
    Around the time I compiled this post
    I thought that I should be better off using the Red Sperti ( The Sperti Fiji).

    Wonder how to figure approximate timing for my (Red) lamp?
    For now I am using it 15min/day

    @Dia how much time you (darker skin) and your daughter (light skin) spend under your (White) Sperti?

    What are the vit D results are from that exposure?

    @JanSz ... Good question... as Vit A is very important to D. I do have about 4oz of cod live (not supplement, but the cod liver itself), a week. Very high in Vit A, as the Retinol is very important. I also eat organic liver once a week as well.

    what about my question about time spend under your Sperti?
    You and your daughter, (black skin, lite skin).
    and what level of vit D that creates?
    Also what level are you aiming for?
    Do you make any seasonal goals for vit D?

    @JanSz , keep in mind that with the Sperti D, will still be making some Vit A, just more D, because is you look at the chart above, UVA is between 315-400 nm.

    I spent a lot of time in the sun in the summertime, but now that we don't have anymore natural Vit D here, I have been using the lamp. I use the lamp more frequently than my daughter. Right now I'm using it five days a week, 10 minutes a day, because I'm dark. My daughter uses it about three time a week, ten minutes a day with better results, because she is fair. We go somewhere warm twice in the winter time as well to get some real sun. I would like to see my Vit D over 50/ng/ml, but I find it hard to get there. I am currently at 47/ng/ml. My daughter is currently at 85/ng/ml.

    Thank you.
    Well, I got Red Sperti. Use it 15 min daily and do not use vit D supplementation)
    Next time I do my vit D test I will post results.
    My lattes known

    vit D=130.0ng/mL on 5/17/16
    vit D=80.3ng/mL on 8/22/16

    Originally I am very white, like my freshly minted daughter in law, next to me (in this August).
    But starting January I spend time in my backyard (NJ 07054), plus little bit of MT-II.
    Also for years I was supplementing vit D, 10000iu/day.
    I stopped vit supplementation almost after the first test (in May), the drop is drastic.

    @JanSz , your family is beautiful, and you're a very handsome young man.

    Those are good levels though. I don't think there's anything to be worried about....

    I do not really worry, I am trying to transition from supplemental to natural vit D.

    Additionally, I have found this chart (post below) and know people with MS and breast cancer, including male breast cancer.
    So, I think that 60 ng/mL is the real bottom that we should obey.

  16. I went with the red (Fiji Sun Tanning Lamp).
    I like that the UV spectrum is larger and the UVB is still really high relative to commercial tanning lamps.
    Doing 16 minutes per day, rotating (in a circle) 90 degrees every 4 minutes.
    Been trying it a month, we'll see how it goes this winter in NE Ohio.

    I look at vitamin D level as a good proxy for absorbed photonic energy.
    When pill supplemented, vitamin D loses it's link to photonic energy.
    Studies sometimes get that confused.

    Indeed it would be nice if @Jack Kruse would chime in specially that they talk about CRP getting higher.

    IIFC, Jack had opinion on why some people can't raise their vitD by supplementing.

    I know, I got mine up to 130.0 ng/mL
    usually I do not test vitD by regular blood tests.
    I do that using Spectracell Micronutrient analysis.
    What I get is opinion on my level in personal functional context.
    So, supplementing I always had enough.

    The other thing is their claim that supplementing with vitD raises crp.
    21ng/mL is very low level per the chart I posted and also Sperti have (the link I posted), so something does not sound right.
    The chart says that such a low level invites breast cancer, MS and other.

    @Jack Kruse is fond of Hs-CRP and many people do it and many have it high.

    I wonder what would be Jack's opinion on ESR?

    to help detect inflammation associated with conditions such as infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases
    Sedimentation Rate, (ESR), Modified Westergren
    (ESR) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate
    Test Number: 005215 CPT: 85652

    Do not forget posting your results.
    Wonder if there is a chart for Red Sperti, similar to what @Dia posted for her White Sperti?

    Thank you.
    Nice article, but..
    They start with talking about vit D deficiency causing rickets.
    Rickets are very important for those who have it, but look at the chart on post #14 here.
    Rickets is separate category. Category all by themselves. Category of super low levels of vit D.
    I worry more about breast cancer and MS. With that we do not have to worry about rickets.

    Good to know that magnesium works with vit D and it is helpful.
    That is nice discussion one can learn a lot that way.
    This is a type of research that doctor's or scientists and many of us learn from.
    I was making lists of this types of dependencies,
    I found
    Spectracell Micronutrient Analysis

    If you have not used this analysis, I suggest that you do.
    It is rather unique analysis and what they claim it works in practice (for me).
    It gives functional status of 35 micronutrients, including vit d and magnesium.
    It cost a cash, can be ordered over internet.
    Insurance would pay for it if ordered by a doc.

    Micronutrient Test (MNT)
    $ 390.00
    I am using it many years.
    What you can expect is consistency from one test to another.
    And logical changes when you introduce some protocol.

    At one time I was looking for something like that and found NutrEval.
    The description and details are impressive there.
    To figure it our I did 3 tests one after another, all cash, almost 3x more expensive than Spectracell.
    Lots of $$ just to find out that I was not able to make heads or tails out of results.
    Each one was very different,
