The scorching sunlight and heat currently being experienced across the country can although be frustrating but we should not forge that this does not come without its own merit. Cliqloaded brings to you 6 amazing positive impact of sunlight on our health.
Boost Vitamin D:
Studies have proven that Vitamin D may help to prevent the onset of diabetes while a deficiency in vitamin D has also been said to contribute to Type II diabetes.
The sun reduces levels of the hormone melatonin which suppresses fertility, so it is more likely you will conceive in summer.
Helps Skin Conditions:
Exposure to the sun can help to heal such skin conditions as psoriasis, acne and eczema. Regular controlled sun exposure is often prescribed for sufferers. For serious cases, contact your doctor. For minor cases, try exposing affected areas of skin to the sun for up to 30 minutes before covering up or slapping on the sunscreen – but make sure you never burn.
Research suggests that sunlight stimulates the pineal gland in the brain to produce certain chemicals called ‘tryptamines’. These chemicals improve our mood.
Relieves Aches And Pains
Being out in the sun helps to warm the body’s muscles and eases stiffness, reducing the pain caused by inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
Aids Some Insects’ Navigation:
Many insects use UV emissions from celestial objects as references for navigating in flight. This is why a light sometimes attracts flying insects by disrupting their navigation process.
