Fall and winter are on their way, it is time to take a break in the sun and stock up on vitamin D. Researchers from all over the world agree on the benefits of sun exposure. One of these is the production of vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential to the body. It promotes the absorption of calcium. This vitamin is also responsible for maintaining the calcium, and phosphate serum concentrations and preventing hypocalcemic tetany.
Vitamin D also has other functions, such as modulating cell growth, immune system functions and reducing inflammation. Emerging research suggests that vitamin D also has a key role in preventing type 1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance and multiple sclerosis.
Another aspect, on which many scientists agree, is the human body’s ability to store vitamin D, and to use it in fall and winter when the organism needs it.
Relax and get focused – Sunshine makes you happy
Exposure to sunlight is also believed to increase the brain’s release of the hormone serotonin. Serotonin is related to boosting mood, helping us to feel calm and focused. Serotonin is also directly related to sleep.
Prepare for winter
If you want to keep your vitamin D reserves high when winter arrives, take a break in September and escape to southern Spain. An excellent place to relax and catch some sunshine when summer already has left Northern Europe is the Costa del Sol. Enjoy the last rays of the summer sun, and the first sunny days of autumn, in Marbella, an enclave in southern Spain that enjoys a privileged microclimate with 320 days of sunshine a year and an average annual temperature of 19º. Spring and fall are the best seasons to visit Costa del Sol.
