Our bodies get Vitamin D from the sun, but as dermatologist Richard Weller suggests, sunlight may confer another surprising benefit too. New research by his team shows that nitric oxide, a chemical transmitter stored in huge reserves in the skin, can be released by UV light, to great benefit for blood pressure and the cardiovascular system.
What does it mean? Well, it might begin to explain why Scots get sick more than Australians.
Working with world leading scientists in the field RelaxSol have developed an innovative approach to sunscreen formulation that allows for the provision of full sun protection coupled with preserved and enhanced delivery of the naturally occurring health benefits of sunlight. You can relax and enjoy the benefits of sunshine with confidence.
The major health benefits that sunlight exposure gives are delivered through Vitamin D and nitric oxide synthesis in the skin. Use of sunscreens prevents the skin from making these important and beneficial naturally occurring substances. Using their innovative approach RelaxSol allows you to maintain full protection from the harmful effects of sunlight while maintaining and maximising the synthesis of Vitamin D and nitic oxide in the skin.
