A Silent Epidemic? Shocking Facts About Vitamin D
According to Good Housekeeping's August 2011 edition, as well as osteoporosis, low levels of vitamin D have been linked to a range of serious conditions from heart disease to diabetes. In a survey of 12 healthy volunteers who took a simple blood test...the results were "alarming". They were all lacking vitamin D which is vital to safeguard the body against a range of serious illnesses. Moreover, in a recent study, "researchers found that women with low levels of vitamin D were, on average, 16.3 lbs heavier than those who were vitamin D sufficient".
Indoor Tanning Helps Replenish Vitamin D
Indoor tanning helps your body to produce Vitamin D, essential for good health. Vitamin D lowers the risk of everyday infections like colds and flu, as well as more serious diseases like breast cancer.
"A review of studies found that women with high blood levels of vitamin D had half the incidence of breast cancer as those with the lowest levels"
- Good Housekeeping
Sunlight is the most natural and effective way for the body to manufacture Vitamin D - indoor or outdoor. 6 out of 10 adults in the UK are Vitamin D deficient. Studies suggest that regular, moderate use of sun beds will raise the levels of Vitamin D in healthy adults by an average of 40%.
Tanning in a sensible manner creates a whole host of health benefits!
