The sun, as we know, is essential for the well-being of our bones and strengthens our immune system: we really can’t do without it.
But not only that, the sunlight is also able to increase serotonin, that is the hormone of happiness, greatly improving our mood.
Obviously too much sun, especially without the right protection, can also harm us and cause skin diseases.
It only takes 10 minutes in the sun to refuel this precious vitamin
We are talking about vitamin D, a fundamental substance for our body, which is responsible for the absorption of calcium.
The production of vitamin D occurs through the skin under the action of the sun, when the wavelength of solar radiation is of considerable intensity.
It must be admitted that reaching the right daily dose of vitamin D in winter is difficult, as the UV rays are weak and we are particularly covered.
Let’s start by saying that when sunbathing it is important to uncover your arms, face and legs, being careful not to get burned and to use adequate protection.
Generally it would be recommended, for example in mid-January, to stay in the sun for about 130 minutes every day.
While, during this month, even with only 25% of the body exposed, 10 minutes are enough, obviously because the sun’s rays are more intense.
Alternatively, just expose yourself to the sun for 20 minutes every two days to allow our body to produce the right amount.
Obviously with the arrival of autumn, for example in October, it would be necessary to stay under the sun at least thirty minutes.
In this way the body synthesizes a form of vitamin D which is useful in the prevention of diseases such as osteoporosis or other pathologies.
It only takes 10 minutes in the sun to refuel this precious vitamin, an economical method that also allows us to tan.
