Benefits Of Tanning



Sunlight has had a lot of bad press lately.  But there is another side to sunlight – one we often forget. Every life form on this planet needs sunlight to survive. Human beings are no exception.

Take a peek at the following and then ask yourself the toughest question of all: Why are we being kept in the dark?

Did You Know ?

Up to ninety-five percent of your body’s vitamin D comes from sun exposure! Decades of scientific research prove that Vitamin D:

  • Improves mood
  • Helps lower blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar
  • Improves immune system (Fewer colds and flu! Yeah!)
  • Needed for strong bones and teeth (Calcium!)
  • Regulates weight
  • Increases muscle strength
  • Normalizes sleep cycles
  • Boosts brain function
  • Improves Asthma and Arthritis in women
  • Prevents chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer

…And so much more.

97 percent of Canadians are vitamin D deficient at some point in the year. Worldwide‚ an estimated 1 billion people don’t get enough of “the sunshine vitamin”.

Vitamin D Deficiency can be linked to these diseases:


  • Many forms of cancer
  • Infertility
  • Tooth Decay
  • Autism
  • Tuberculosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic pain
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Gluten intolerance
  • Arthritis
  • Seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.)
  • Several autoimmune diseases
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Schizophrenia


UV exposure has many therapeutic effects and helps you stay healthy. A great way to take advantage of these effects safely is through indoor tanning!
