08 Apr Sunbeds & vitamin D
Spring is here! The sun is shining and our bodies start creating vitamin D again. Hurray! When you don’t live in southern Europe you’ll probably have a decreased vitamin D level at the moment. With the sunshine mostly gone from September to April, it can be hard increase your vitamin D level. The solution? Responsible enjoyment under an Ergoline sunbed!
Yes, your skin also produces vitamin D under a sunbed. But how does this work? As we explained in this blog, the light from the tanning bed is equivalent to the natural sunlight. According to Dr. Mercola and many other scientists, a sunbed is, besides from the natural sunshine, the best option to maintain your vitamin D level. The vitamin D that our skin produces under the influence of UVB radiation is different from the vitamin D that we receive through food / supplements. With the help of UV light our skin produces vitamin D3 sulfate. This form of vitamin D is water-soluble and can be moved freely through our bloodstream. Oral vitamin D is not water-soluble and needs LDL cholesterol to travel in our body. This reduces the positive effect that the food / supplements have diminished.
