Garden Sun Loungers
Here we want to give you some insights into the benefits you will accrue from our garden wooden pallet sun lounger. Although the benefits are more from the sun than from the garden furniture. But it is the sun lounger that facilitates and encourages sun bathing.
Did you know that every time you sun lounge, your bones get stronger? Even though the sun will never reach your bones. UV rays help produce vitamin D in the skin. Remember that this vitamin is very important for the mineralization of bones. By promoting the absorption in the intestine of calcium and phosphorus and preventing their loss in the kidney.
5 or 10 minutes of sun are enough, two or three times a week to recharge the deposits of vitamin D. In Kenya it is very easy to get, since we have sun all year round. But in countries with fewer hours of sun, there are higher incidence of rickets in children and osteoporosis.
The sun stimulates your defenses
Have you noticed that in the winters after a vacation in the sun, you have less flu and colds? It has been seen that the sun is capable of increasing the number of white blood cells or lymphocytes , the cells responsible for the first defense against infection.
Do fats dissolve in the sun? Well, although it sounds strange, this is the case, people who live in sunny climates have a lower incidence of cardiovascular diseases.
Cholesterol levels have been found to be lower in summer , in part because UV light is necessary to metabolize cholesterol, and when we sunbathe lowers cholesterol levels and prevents it from sticking to the arteries.
Another explanation is also that in summer we move more and eat more fruits and vegetables in season.
Vitamin D lowers blood pressure
Did you know that some athletes avoid sunbathing before a competition? The sun causes a vasodilation of superficial blood vessels and increases blood circulation in the skin, lowering blood pressure values.
It also increases metabolism and cleansing of tissues. These beneficial effects can work against a sportsperson, since the drop in blood pressure can cause a decrease in alertness before a test, but after the competition or in people with hypertension the sun has a medicinal effect.
The explanation seems to be in vitamin D again, because in the presence of this vitamin, parathyroid hormone levels decrease, which is responsible for releasing calcium from the bones and regulating blood pressure. When vitamin D levels rise from the sun, parathyroid hormone and blood pressure decrease accordingly.
Sunbathing prevents cancer
Did you know that there are cancers that appear more frequently in countries with fewer hours of sunshine? Mediterranean countries have a lower incidence of breast cancer, colon cancer, etc. versus the Nordic countries.
The explanation for this natural protection is once again in the protective effect of vitamin D against tumors. Recent studies have found that sunlight helps protect not only against breast and colon cancer, but also against other tumors such as ovarian, bladder, uterus, stomach, lymphomas and prostate.
Vitamin D protects against multiple sclerosis
What does a degenerative disease of the central nervous system have to do with the sun? Scientists have not discovered it yet, it seems that the relationship is in the increase in vitamin D levels, but the facts speak for themselves: the incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS) is higher in countries with fewer hours of sunlight. It seems that sun exposure in childhood dramatically reduces the risk of developing this disease in the future.
