Hi Anonymous,

15-20 minutes in the morning sun is all you need to achieve a good source of Vitamin D. As tempting as it can be to lay on a tanning bed, the production of Vit D is different from a tanning bed than it is from the best source- the sun. 

Please read more on the difference between laying on a tanning bed and the sun: http://www.womentowomen.com/healthynutrition/vitamindandtanningbeds.aspx

Good luck,
