Dr. Holick describes when the human body makes vitamin D.

Dr. Holick:
You cannot make vitamin D in your skin in the early morning and late afternoon, and that’s why I typically recommend that if you want to take advantage of the beneficial effect of sunlight, it needs to be between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
