    Can I ask how much you've looked into this yourself? Just typing into google "vitamin D synthesis" provides many in depth explanations. Generally it's best not to ask cold questions here. If you've done this and there's something specific you don't understand or would like some clarity on that's fine, just ask about that specifically.
