Vitamin D Lamp

 

Vitamin D is vital for a healthy body; however, vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common with around 1 billion people worldwide suffering from low levels. Although vitamin D can be reintroduced to the body in a number of ways, for some people who struggle to maintain healthy levels, additional help may be needed – and that’s where we come in.

At MBS we offer a range of specialist UVB lamps for vitamin D deficiency, using the market-leading specialist equipment, each of our kits is made to the highest standards to ensure the best results possible. UVB light is used for those with a vitamin D deficiency as it triggers the production of the vitamin in the skin, similarly to the way natural sunlight does, making it an ideal at-home remedy.

There are a number of reasons for why someone may suffer from low vitamin D levels, including:

  • Limited exposure to sunlight
  • Vegan diet
  • Having dark skin
  • Being elderly

Vitamin D is crucial in assisting the body to absorb necessary calcium and phosphate from our diet, which is why those who don’t eat dairy or milk are most likely to struggle with a vitamin D deficiency. The minerals we require through vitamin D are vital for strong bones, teeth and muscles. Someone struggling with low levels of vitamin D will often feel fatigued and may also struggle with regular headaches and muscle soreness.

Light therapy works by encouraging the skin to produce vitamin D through ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays.

There a range of potential treatments for vitamin D deficiency, and your doctor will advise based on your particular circumstances. Some of the most common treatments for vitamin D deficiency include:

  • Diet – you may be advised to increase your vitamin D intake through eating more of certain foods. Items such as fatty fish, egg, cheese and orange juice are known to be great sources of Vitamin D
  • Supplements – in many cases, you may be advised to take a course of vitamin D supplements either as short term or as a daily supplement to keep your vitamin D levels stable. This is particularly true for those who cannot consume vitamin D through diet, such as vegans.
  • Light therapy – Those who spend a lot of time in the sun are likely to have good levels of vitamin D, however here in the UK where the weather is often unpredictable, it can be difficult to maintain. UVB light therapy works in the same way as sunlight in that it helps the skin produce the necessary vitamin D our body needs.

Depending on your specific circumstance will determine how effective treatment is, but it’s important to remember that light therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatments to get the most effective results.
