We know that Vitamin D is essential to maintaining health and the latest research demonstrates how Vitamin D can in fact suppress the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease which affects muscle movement, balance and vision. This is due to Myelin becoming damaged. Myelin coats the nerves essential in enabling the transit of electrical signals to the brain via the spinal cord and as this becomes weakened by damaging immune cells, the electrical signals are disrupted, resulting in loss of balance, muscle stiffness, loss of vision, fatigue and many other debilitating symptoms.
Research conducted at John Hopkins University in Baltimore has shown that Vitamin D supplementation prevents damaging immune cells from travelling to the brain and subsequently protects Myelin from being worn away.

We have published many articles on the benefits of UV light and it’s role in encouraging the production of Vitamin D within the body. Articles cover research demonstrating that “The Sun IS good for you” to research describing a “Global Pandemic of Vitamin D Deficiency”
Vitamin D deficiency is much more common in the Northern Hemisphere than any other part of the world and this in turn leads to geographical trends in relation to certain illnesses that occur as a result of being Vitamin D deficient
We at The Tanning Shop will continue to bring our readers updates upon the publication of new research and articles that are important to Health and Wellbeing through the promotion of the benefits of Vitamin D
