We live in a modern world that is bombarded with paranoid messages about how dangerous the sun is even though we evolved as a human race for millions of years under the warmth and love of the sun. Doctors have known for years that sunlight has a profound effect on the body's production of vitamin D. Several recent studies have found that there are other big benefits to soaking up sunshine:
Lower Blood Pressure
Lower Breast Cancer Risk
Improved Brain Function
Less Joint Pain
Less skin disorders
Better sleep quality
Increased vitamin D production
Beter immune system
May help prevent cancer
On the other hand, too much sun can do more harm than good. It can cause premature skin aging, suppresses the immune system and have detrimental consequences on human health.
So maintaining a healthy lifestyle means balance - including sun exposure. How do we protect ourselves from the risks while enjoying and harnessing the benefits of sunlight?
Think about it as a scale measuring both the UV dose hitting your skin and the vitamin D generated from your exposure to the sun. You won't have to guess anymore. Violet® Mobile App tells you how much time you have left in the sun before it becomes dangerous. It estimates with high accuracy your daily vitamin D from the sun in IUs
