The Health Benefits of Tanning

There are many health benefits associated with moderate UV tanning that are now being recognised…

UV light is vital for the production of vitamin D…

Bone:

Vitamin D regulates the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus. These minerals are vital for growth and the development and hardening of bones and teeth.

Immune System:

Parts of the bone marrow where immune cells are made respond to vitamin D, which is also thought to play a role in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

Hormones:

By playing a role in the secretion of insulin by the pancreas, vitamin D helps in the regulation of blood sugar.

Nervous System:

Vitamin D ensures the functioning of healthy nerves and muscles by regulating calcium levels in the blood, vital for nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction.
