The sun is our only source of light on Earth. As long as you do not expose yourself directly or for a long time to its UV rays, it is a source of benefits, and here is how to take advantage of them.
Good for the mood
Exposure to the sun increases the release of dopamine and serotonin. This is what helps fight seasonal depression and control mood, sleep or appetite disturbances.
Source of the Vitamin D
Vitamin D is necessary for the fixation of calcium in our bones. Under the effect of UVB, certain skin cells are forced to synthesize Vitamin D. Thus, exposure to the sun gives you 80% to 90% of the required dose of the Vitamin.
Exposure to daylight in the morning helps regulate your body clock through the secretion of melatonin. Melatonin makes it easier to fall asleep.
Boost the immune system
In fact, UV rays stimulate the activity of T lymphocytes, which are involved in the defense mechanisms when the body is exposed to an infection.
And…prevent myopia !
The figures are astounding: exposed longer to natural light, children have 25 to 50% less risk of developing myopia!
In conclusion, our body needs the sun’s rays to be in good shape. To be consumed in moderation!
