10 Reasons why Tanning is Good for You!

  1. It cheers you up.
    Sunshine boosts levels of serotonin-the body’s natural “happy hormone” That’s why we tend to feel more energetic when the sun shines. Regular sun can ward off moderate depression.
  2. Reduces heart disease.
    A study in the British Medical Journal showed that people in the UK are more likely to die of heart disease in winter than summer, which is believed to be caused by lower levels of vitamin d, or UV light during those months. It also depends where you live. Blackpool, England has 27% more hours of sunshine every year than Burnley, England. There are 9% fewer deaths in Blackpool from coronary heart disease every year.
  3. Helps prevent diabetes
    Vitamin D may help prevent the onset of diabetes according to a study in Finland. The study showed that children who were given a vitamin D supplement for several years had an 80% lower risk of developing Type I diabetes.
  4. Beats SAD
    Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is depression specifically caused by lack of sunlight. Tanning or light therapy is used to treat people with low to moderate SAD.
  5. Helps prevent MS
    Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system, leading to tremors & even paralysis. While the cause is not known, scientists have noted that exposure to sunlight in childhood appears to dramatically reduce the risk of developing MS. They have also discovered that the occurrence of MS is especially low in countries that have more sunlight per year.
  6. Prevents Cavities
    The sun could help keep your teeth strong. A dental study found the prevalence of cavities was greater in children from Scotland than in Wales. The only striking difference is Wales has an average of more sunshine each year.
  7. Relieves aches & pains Being out in the sun helps to warm the body’s muscles & ease stiffness, which reduces the pain caused by inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
  8. Reduces risk of cancers           Although overexposure to the sun can increase your chance of skin cancer, vitamin D provided by sunlight can actually help significantly reduce risk of other types of cancer.

    A study carried out by the US National Cancer Institute found that people exposed to high levels of sunlight were less likely to die from breast & colon cancer. A similar effect was seen in bladder, esophagus and stomach cancers.

  9. Gives you more energy.
    Melatonin is produced by UV rays. It is a chemical that regulates sleep, so having lower levels of this hormone in your body gives you more energy. This is why in summer; people need less sleep than usual, but still feel livelier.

Vitamin D

A recent study at Boston University School of Medicine showed that vitamin D helps lower blood pressure.


Vitamin D: Vital Role in Your Health
No doubt, you’re probably familiar with vitamin superstars, such as vitamin C and E and their roles in your health. But lately the attention has shifted to the long neglected vitamin D, which is finally getting its time “to shine.”

Sure, you probably know that vitamin D has been a popular supplement for promoting healthy bones. However, current studies showed that low levels of vitamin D could be connected with several other diseases, such as cancers of the colon, prostate, breast, ovaries, esophagus and lymphatic system. Also, persons with low levels of vitamin D may experience bone and muscle pain and an increased risk of type 1 diabetes.

A recent study at Boston University School of Medicine showed that vitamin D helps lower blood pressure. The three-month test exposed people with high blood pressure to UVA and UVB rays and resulted in their vitamin D levels increasing by over 100%-and more importantly-their high blood pressure returned to normal.

With these exciting findings, vitamin D should finally get the attention it deserves.

How Much Vitamin D Do You Need?
The Vitamin D Council, recommends healthy adults and adolescents take 5,000 IU of vitamin D per day. Even though vitamin D is stored in the body for up to six months, we need continuous replenishment because our bodies use 3,000 to 5,000 units per day.

Increasing Your Intake of Vitamin D
Chances are, if you don’t get outdoors much, are a stickler for applying sunscreen or live in an area with dark winter days-you just might be deficient in vitamin D.

The Vitamin D Council says vitamin D supplements are necessary unless you use a sunbed weekly or live in Florida and sunbathe once a week-every week. Smart Tan News (smarttan.com) recently reported sunbeds that emit UVB (almost 95 percent of sunbeds out there today) also make about 1,000 IU of vitamin D per minute when 90 percent of a tanner’s body is exposed to the light
