12 benefits of Infrared Saunas: Vitamin D
Day 1 of our 12 benefits of Infrared Sauna Series!
Alexis is leading us through everything Vitamin D and Infrared Saunas.
Why is Vitamin D so important?
your body needs it to maintain strong/healthy bones
it regulates cellular functions in the body
it reduces the risk of autoimmune diseases
boosts mood and reduces depression
The reality is that most people are deficient in Vitamin D especially in the winter because we tend to not be outside as much as we are in the warmer seasons.
The sun releases uv waves which penetrate the skin and kickstarts Vitamin D synthesis, the infrared light in our saunas are able to do the same thing without the negative effects of the sun.
It only take 30 mins in one of our red light therapy to increase your Vitamin D levels.
