SUN is a star of the centre of the solar system. It is important for the universe and all planets and nonetheless, it’s equally a star in the medical field important for the nature and the human body.
It is still a question whether the sun is a friend or a foe. But yes, without any doubt it has many health benefits.
Regulating serotonin levels - Amount of daylight exposure is vital in maintaining a normal circadian rhythm. These rhythms include physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle and respond to light and darkness in the body's environment. Regular sunlight exposure can naturally increase the serotonin levels in your body, making you more active and alert.
Vitamin D3 stock - Blood levels of cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3, are relatively low in the winter months. Sunlight exposure in the summer can equip your body to stock up on vitamin D3 that can last throughout the fall and yield for the production of more vitamin D, which leads to higher serotonin levels.
Lowering blood pressure - Skin that is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays release a compound, nitric oxide that lowers blood pressure.
Protection from melanoma - Safe sun exposure can actually protect us from melanoma. The skin's exposure to ultraviolet radiation of short wavelengths (UVB) has been linked to a decreased risk of melanoma in outdoor workers compared to their indoor counterparts, which suggests chronic sunlight exposure can have a protective effect.
Multiple magic - Skin's response to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation primarily through sun exposure is producing vitamin d3, which affects 10 percent of the genes in the human body. A healthy supply of vitamin D promotes bone growth and prevent illnesses such as breast and colon cancer, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, seasonal disorders, and depression.
