Even though you may get plenty of Vitamin D through sunlight in the Spring and Summer months, many people have a Vitamin D deficiency in Fall and Winter. While dairy provides a powerful punch of Vitamin D, sometimes it just isn’t enough.
Our bodies convert sunlight into Vitamin D kind of like how a plant processes sunlight to make food. Vitamin D helps our bodies absorb calcium in the blood stream, which is vital to maintaining bone strength and tooth health. So if you are Vitamin D deficient, you are more prone to fractures and cavities.
Because sunlight likes to hide during Fall and Winter, tanning beds are a good way to combat the lack of sun. Even though it’s not natural sunlight, each tanning bed has UV rays, which helps your body product Vitamin D.
So you not only get to relax in the tanning bed, but do something good for yourself and give your body that needed sunlight to product Vitamin D.
