A healthy vitamine D level all year round
Sunlight plays an important role in various bodily functions, often related to the production of vitamin D. A daily low dose of ten minutes of sunlight is enough for a healthy vitamin D level.
Unfortunately, most people are not able to get even that much during the autumn and winter months. That is why 70% of West Europeans have a vitamin D deficiency in autumn. Research shows that daily use of Sunshower products with a low UV dose during the winter months doubles the vitamin D level.*
Vitamin D is the only vitamin that the human body can produce itself. When the skin is exposed to UV or sunlight, it produces the pre-vitamin D3, which the liver and kidneys then convert into vitamin D. This process is boosted by UV-B radiation. Scientific research shows that the list of physical processes affected by vitamin D is getting longer every year.
* Research LUMC, 2007
Scientific research has shown that vitamin D affects physical processes (positively). For example, vitamin D is responsible for:
- absorption of calcium
- supressing infections
- stimulation of the immune system
- development and maintenance of muscle functions
- development and maintenance of cognitive functions

This raises the body temperature, while the surroundings feel cool. In addition to a sense of well-being and relaxation, infrared radiation decreases back and neck complaints, muscle pain and rheumatic complaints and it stimulates blood circulation

Safe sunlight on demand at your own home
The sun is a source of life. She nourishes us and sunlight gives us energy. The ultraviolet light ensures the production of vitamin D. This vitamin maintains our resistance. Daily exposure to sunlight is important for our entire wellbeing. A daily low dose of UV has been proven to be safe. Sunlight is the poetic name for the physics term ultraviolet. Sunlight consists of UV-A- and UV-B rays.
Rays that each have their own effect and their own frequency. We can simulate these frequencies, so that we can be nourished by beneficial UV light even on a cloudy day, in winter or when we’re forced to stay indoors. Not insignificant when we consider the many aspects of ultraviolet.
In short, UV light is essential for many vital functions in our bodies: it regulates our biological clock, takes care of healthy hormone production and production of vitamin D. In addition, ultraviolet stimulates the production of pigment and melanin; the natural protection from sunlight. Finally, UV light has a therapeutic effect and can be used for chronic skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema and sun allergy.
