Indoor Tanning Equipment in the Spring can make Vitamin D
Date:3/27/2013

Kelowna, BC (PRWEB) March 27, 2013

Canadians can’t obtain vitamin D from natural sun exposure in the months of October through April. The Joint Canadian Tanning Association wants Canadian to know published research, and anecdotal evidence, actually shows that indoor sunbathing may be a more effective option for increasing vitamin D levels than supplements.

A study from Boston University School of Medicine found that even when taking 400 International Units (the mean recommendation from Health Canada) of vitamin D daily, levels are likely to decline into deficiency. Whereas, participants who received UVB exposure from tanning equipment three times a week had levels that continued to increase.

A 2012 European study also showed that three sunbed sessions a week is more effective at raising vitamin D levels to an optimal point than a daily 1000 IU supplement.

A personal experiment by Joint Canadian Tanning Association Executive Director Steve Gilroy also supports the conclusion from those studies on increasing vitamin D levels. Since 2009, Gilroy has taken part in the GrassrootsHealth D*Action vitamin D testing program. As a regular indoor tanner, for his first testing in February of 2009, Gilroy had a vitamin D serum level of 112 nmol/L, well within the optimal vitamin D serum level (100-150 nmol/L) recommended by Grassroot
