Did you know that natural sunlight helps people be more productive, happier, healthier and calmer? From skylights to sunrooms to folding glass walls, all Solar Innovations products increase the amount of natural daylight in your home or business. This in turn nourishes your psyche and reduces anxiety and stress.
With the increased use of in-home technology, many people are choosing to stay indoors when relaxing and enjoying free time. Solar Innovations sunrooms and conservatories allow consumers to reap the benefits of natural sun while enhancing their properties’ values.
Vitamin D, which is recognized as a preventative vitamin against cancer, osteoporosis, and many other crippling diseases, is naturally created within the body when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D, specifically D3, aids in the maintenance of normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus within the body. Both calcium and phosphorus are important in preserving bone strength and density.
Although many attempts have been made to simulate sunlight, no substitute developed to date compares to the real thing. Ultraviolet or UV rays, which most Americans choose to avoid, can be advantageous in maintaining health. It may take several months to replenish your body’s Vitamin D levels if you become deficient. Experts say that exposing skin to sunlight for five to thirty minutes daily can help to recoup some of the lost Vitamin D.
Solar Innovations’ extensive line of glazing products can be utilized to ensure that customers are achieving the desired level of UV exposure in their new structure. Solar works with several suppliers to achieve a wide variety of glazing options, ranging from 2% to 53% UV transmittance, which can be custom incorporated to create the perfect environment for sunrooms or conservatories.
Beyond physical ailments, it is important to note that the absorption of Vitamin D can improve mood and prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder by increasing the amount of endorphins, enkephalins, and dynorphins, all of which are naturally occurring in the body.
Take a step into the sun, or your new Solar Innovations sunroom to enjoy one of nature’s best medicines free of charge.
