Chicago, Illinois, January 24, 2011 -- Mercola.com founder and natural health expert, Dr. Joseph Mercola, warns against most commercial tanning beds today. But he stresses the importance of ultraviolet (UV) light emitted by a safe tanning system, especially if you’re not getting adequate sunlight exposure.
A safe tanning bed or standup tanning system can provide UVA and UVB exposure. UVA rays from the sun help protect your skin against sunburn through tanning, while UVB rays help your skin produce up to 80 percent of the vitamin D in your body.
Vitamin D is best produced through direct and appropriate sunlight exposure. “Beware of vitamin D deficiency not only during a colder climate, but also if you work indoors or don’t get adequate sunlight,” Dr. Mercola warns.
Mercola tanning beds offer not only beneficial UV rays, but also infrared, red, and blue lights for a variety of health benefits.
Infrared light provides temporary relief from muscle pain and stiffness, while red light in the 633 nm range promotes collagen production and helps reverse dull, dry, and wrinkled skin. Blue light has been certified by the American Academy of Dermatology as supportive of overall skin health, safe, and generates no additional heat or harmful radiation.
Mercola standup tanning systems are also available in four types:
• SunSplash Tanning Unit for UVA and UVB rays
• D-Lite System for UVB rays, ideal for those who want to optimize their vitamin D levels without tanning
• SunSplash Renew for the combined benefits of SunSplash Tanning, D-Lite System, and red visible light
• SunSplash Refresh for all the light technologies in a single unit -- UVA and UVB rays, red light, and blue light
Mercola Home Tanning Systems are recommended by the Vitamin D Council, whose scientists agree that both children and adults should have vitamin D levels between approximately 50 and 75 ng/ml all year round.
