Natural Remedies 7/8

Sunlight! In the right dose, sunlight is one of the great allies of the health not only of the mind but also of the body. Research has already revealed the key role in vitamin D production, responsible for the proper functioning of the body. Its main activity is related to the metabolism of calcium, an essential element in the prevention of diseases such as osteoporosis and rickets.

The so-called seasonal depression is caused by long periods without the sun. Regulated by the cycle of light and shade, the functioning of the body can be compromised if there is an imbalance between these two elements. Research published in the scientific journal The Lancet - specializing in oncology, neurology and infectious diseases - revealed that changes in luminosity throughout the year alter the levels of some substances produced by the brain, including serotonin.

> Practical tips:
* Homes must have solar lighting locations. Sometimes it is necessary to remove curtains, open the windows, suspend shutters so that the sun's rays enter the rooms.

* If you do not have sensitive skin and do not take medicines that cause photosensitivity, take at least 15 to 20 minutes of sunshine a day on your arms and legs.
