Sun exposure is related to osteoporosis, harness the power of the sun to help cure and prevent it

If you’ve ever broken a bone, you will know how painful and debilitating it feels. But, for many of the 75million people[1]in American and Europe who suffer from Osteoporosis, the risk of breaking or fracturing a bone is an everyday worry.

What is Osteoporosis? It’s a condition where you lose too much bone and your body is unable to replace it. It decreases your bone density, making you far more susceptible to fractures and breakages from simple everyday bumps.

To stay strong, our bones need firstly calcium and then vitamin D that helps absorb it. Researchers found that vitamin D levels[2]tend to be lower in people with osteoporosis. So, an increase in vitamin D can help us keep a stronger skeleton, with bones that are less likely to break.  In turn, our bodies need vitamin D to help us process the calcium that we get from our food.

How can sun exposure help? Sunlight is the best natural source of vitamin D for humans.  Maintaining strong bones can slow down the rate of developing osteoporosis. If you already have osteoporosis, vitamin D can help increase bone density reducing your chances of suffering a break or a fracture.

How much sunlight do you need to get enough Vitamin D?  Just ten minutes of sun exposure[3]on bare skin, a few times a day, taking care not to burn, can help improve vitamin D levels.
