As well we go the beach, lake or ocean, or some stay at home and enjoy our swimming pools. Or perhaps some of us just like to kick back and sunbathe. And we can’t forget that during winter many seek sunny climates perhaps for a week or two or more.
And every year in the US alone about one third of the adult population or about 30 million make a lifestyle choice to embrace the benefits of the sun by visiting facilities offering indoor tanning. Plus millions more own or will purchase a home tanning bed. Do they know something you don’t…maybe?

And it has been proven that the healthy uvb rays from a tanning bed, just like the sun will naturally produce Vitamin D too.
Research has also proven that Sunshine or UVB light is simply the most efficient method for the body to produce Vitamin D naturally in order to maintain a long and healthy life. And most experts agree all it takes is about 15-20 minutes of sunshine or healthy uvb light from a tanning bed.
