11 Amazing Benefits of Sun Exposure…

Happy in the grass

Find out why the sun and Slimming Tea create a perfect “Happiness Cocktail!”

 

Today I feel like celebrating!

After what seems like interminably cloudy, windy days; we’re finally having a good dose of sun!

One of my employees spent the afternoon in the park yesterday in Denver – another went to a street fair in Chicago – and I ran outside with my puppies in Texas.  We were all in such great moods!

Did you know that Western culture even has traditions of sunlight therapy that date back to the ancient Greeks?  They called it Heliosis.

So if you’re going to brave going outside without sunscreen this year (which blocks the Vitamin D absorption in your body), here are 10 reasons you’re going to feel better for it!

Oh yeah… and if you’re just reading for the FLASH SALE – go HERE now.

10 Amazing Benefits of Sun Exposure

1. Sun May Reverse Certain Cancers…

Some medical experts have used a whole-foods based diet with sunlight to reverse metabolized breast cancer.  Dr. Zane Kime popularized the theory with the book “Sunlight”, in which he proposes that sunlight lowers cholesterol, blood pressure, and pressure on blood sugar.  He also discusses how sun combined with a whole foods diet can help you resist infection.

2.  Sun Makes You Sexy…

Dr. Kime also proposes that Sunlight increases endurance, and even sex hormones.  Maybe sun, and not ‘bathing suits’, is the reason so many teenagers flock to the beach for days on end?

3. Sun Fights Bacteria…

14 million people visit the hospital every year from skin and soft tissue infections.  However, the antibiotics normally used to treat bacteria are becoming less effective in a society that has become increasingly resistant to antiobiotics.  According to the AAC (Antimicrobial Agents & Chemotherapy) Report from December 20121, sunlight may reverse skin infections or bacteria contracted through surgeries, under-chlorinated pools, even dirty contact lenses2.

4. Sun Fights Acne…

I’ll never forget watching my father sunbathe for hours when I was a kid.  A lifetime acne sufferer – he claimed that the sun helped ‘dry up’ acne.  Hmm… was he crazy?  Not necessarily!  Well think about it; sun is known to fight bacteria.  And not to mention Vitamin D is the best way for our bodies to fight acne!  Now imagine what moderate sun exposure and acne-fighting Slimming Tea can do for your skin!

 5. Sunlight Lowers Cholesterol…

The sun may convert high cholesterol in the body into steroid and sex hormones4.  However in a lack of sunlight, your cholesterol levels may become to high!  It’s important to talk to your doctor about how much cholesterol is too high or too low.  Yes – cholesterol CAN be too low.  Did you know that if your cholesterol levels are too low… you won’t be able to absorb the sun’s amazing benefits?  Healthy exposure to sun promotes sufficient levels of Vitamin D, but in order to for your body to synthesize Vitamin D, you also need healthy levels of cholesterol.5

 6.  Sunlight Increases Testosterone

Vitamin D is a “steroid” hormone that is critical in developing healthy sperm cells.  Moreover, Vitamin D. actually helps boost libido by increasing testosterone.  Austrian researchers found that overweight men who were given Vitamin D. supplements over one year had a significant increase in testosterone6.

7. Sunlight Lowers Blood Pressure…

The Journal of Investigative Dermatology proposes that just 30 minutes of sun per day is linked to lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure and therefore reducing your risk of a heart attack.7

8. Sun Boosts Metabolism…

Sunlight delivers oxygen to the blood – kind of like a workout!  In fact, moderate sunlight also stresses the body similar to they way resistance training would; thereby increasing metabolism8.

9.  Sunlight Is Good For Kids…

It isn’t all about getting away from the glowing box in the living room.  (Which is increasingly becoming more of a glowing ‘tablet’.)  Sunlight in small children may actually effect how tall the child becomes!  Studies promote pregnant women provide moderate sun exposure to promote strong bones in their babies9.  Another concern for women who’ve had ceasarians is that these babies are often found to be Vitamin D deficient10!  All the more reason to go play outside, little ones!

 10.  Sunlight Makes You Happy…

A lot of people complain about being sad during the winter – which is referred to as “Seasonal Affective Disorder” – or SAD.  There’s some truth to this!  In fact, one study found that sunlight increases serotonin, one of our brain’s ‘happiness chemicals’11.  Did you know that Slimming Tea also increases serotonin and dopamine production in our brains, making us feel happier when we drink it?  Read more about Slimming Tea here.

 11.  Sunlight Helps You Sleep Better…

When your eyes are exposed to the sun, your brain produces melatonin; a hormone that helps you sleep. When you’re exposed to the sun in the daytime, your brain produces natural melatonin at night – which helps you get a good night’s sleep12.

Now go enjoy a cup of Slimming Tea and some of those beautiful sunny rays!

Both the sun AND Slimming Tea have effects on your brain that increase ‘happiness chemicals’, dopamine and seratonin.
