The Tanning Studio Succeeds Where The Dietary Supplement Doesn't


The solar bank succeeds where dietary supplements don't!

In countries like Germany or Scandinavia, the natural force of the sun from October to March is not strong enough, to accumulate a satisfactory level of vitamin D in the body ". The stocks of vitamin D accumulated in the summer, which are stored in the fatty tissues of the body, fall rapidly. People are vulnerable to many diseases because their immune system is no longer adequately controlled or protected by the "sunshine vitamin".

vitamin DCan deficiency in this situation be rectified by UV rays from a ‘sun bank' {tanning studio}? Or is it better to have food or supplements contain Vitamin D?

This is the question posed and researched by a group of researchers at the medical faculty of the University of. The results lead to a plea for the ‘Sun Bank'{tanning studio}:


The participants in the experiment, Norwegians from 20 to 35 years, with the sensitive skin type I or II, were given commercial irradiation twice a week on a Solarium below the threshold erythema dose (MED - the radiation dose in the skin shows an initial redness ) For a period of four weeks.

It showed that without damage to the skin of the vitamin D levels (25 OH D3) in this period increased by an average 40 percent increase. The subjects also developed a mild tanning their skin.

Following tanning at the ‘sun bank' (tanning beds), was a group administered with regular cod liver oil - the most effective dietary supplement products containing vitamin D. Another group received no additional vitamin D-containing food.

Eight weeks after the last visit to the solar Bank {tanning studio} all of the subjects reverted back to their original measured levels of vitamin D status - superseding even the "cod liver oil group"!
