Vitamin D source? - Goose - 11-13-2012 10:21 AM

Hi James

I was wondering what you thought of this product as a possible source of Vitamin D3 as we enter the winter months? Does it seem genuine and effective is basically what I want to know. Is it safe as well? How long would you recommend using it for in a day?

Also, glasses come with it to protect from UV rays. I heard sunglasses suppress the melanin regulation hormone in the brain so UVA rays penetrate too deepy due to not enough melanin? This unit seems to be mostly UBV so would that still be a concern?

Cheers.

Also I will be ordering quite a few herbs from you soon again so let me know when you'll have time to deal with orders and I'll send an order through.

Regards

Sun lamps are a good way to get vitamin D. They are commonly used in the very Northern countries where there is little to no light during parts of the winter.

We only need about 15 minutes of full body exposure per day to meet our vitamin D needs. How much is too much will depend in part on skin type. A person with fair skin should not have as much exposure as someone who has dark skin or is tanned.

As for the sunglass hypothesis I would have to see some pretty good evidence to back this. In general this does not make sense. Think about it this way. When people go in to tanning booths they still tan (produce more melanin) despite wearing the protective glasses.
