Optimal Vitamin D level
Double your vitamin D level in winter. Treat yourself to UV light for 30 minutes a week during the darker months.
Take time for health
One Sunshower session equals ten minutes of Dutch summer sun. That has a positive effect on your general well-being.
Boost your immune system
In recent years, more and more research has been conducted into the influence of vitamin D on the immune system. The reason for all these studies is that influenza hardly occurs in the summer; the time of year when we are outside more often and our skin can produce more vitamin D.
Vitamin D plays a central role in regulating your immune system; it helps activate and suppress your immune cells. So give your immune system a daily boost.
Maintain a healthy vitamin D level
You mostly produce Vitamin D yourself with the help of UVB light. Because there is hardly any UV present in the sunlight between the poles and the tropics in winter, a large part of the population is vitamin D deficient.
Especially in Northern European countries, where an average of 60-70% has a vitamin D deficiency by the end of winter. There are various possible ways of making up this deficiency. How to maintain a healthy vitamin D level.
"Sunshower helps me prevent muscle pain"
Nana (42): “Because I have a slightly darker skin colour, I produce vitamin D less readily. So it's important to make sure I always get a good dose to stay healthy. The UV light from Sunshower helps me do that.”
Stronger bones and teeth
Vitamin D aids the absorption of calcium and phosphate. Vitamin D ensures that these substances are absorbed into the blood via the intestine and subsequently into bones and teeth.
And a good thing too! Because without vitamin D, bones become soft and cannot heal properly after a fracture or crack. In adults, vitamin D deficiency can make the bones softer. This can cause bone and muscle pain in the thighs and hips and increases the risk of fractures. So prevent a vitamin D deficiency.
