November is Vitamin D Awareness Month, marking the time to take action, and educate yourself on the benefits of maintaining sufficient vitamin D levels.
Besides rest, one of the most important nutrients for our immune system is Vitamin D, which is created in our skin on exposure to sunlight. In the UK, as we can’t make Vitamin D in our winter time, now is the time when our stores of this vital vitamin have run out and we are most likely to be deficient.
Lack of this essential vitamin can have a negative impact on everyone’s health – young or old, healthy or unhealthy. Optimizing your vitamin D levels may help you prevent cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, infections, mental health conditions, and more.
Adults will need a vitamin D intake of approximately 4,000 IU or 100 mcg daily to reach the optimal blood levels of vitamin D.
The good news is that tanning beds emit ultraviolet rays, boosting healthy vitamin D production in your skin. Sunbeds enable exposure to nearly 100% of skin in a controlled manner which amplifies their effectiveness for vitamin D production. They can also improve your mood, especially during the dark winter months when the lack of sunlight can cause the type of depression known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
