Nowadays, a lot of people prefer to avoid the sun to cut the risk of damaging their skin. However, sunlight is actually very good for you mostly because it allows your body to produce vitamin D, otherwise called the sunshine vitamin! ☀️☀️☀️
First of all, sunshine will boost your level of serotonin, the body’s natural happy hormone. This is probably why we feel more cheerful in the warmer months as opposed to the colder months with shorter daylight. During long winters, people often experience depression and chances are, they are deficient in vitamin D due to the lack of sunlight.
The benefits of sunlight are endless mainly because it is the greatest producer of vitamin D.
Some of the benefits of vitamin D include:
♡ Helps decrease risk of osteoporosis, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers
♡ Fights cardiovascular disease as well as colds and flus
♡ Regulates immune system
♡ Helps the absorption of calcium which strengthens bones and teeth
♡ Helps lower blood pressure levels and hypertension
In fact, we’ve found many similarities between vitamin D and white tea!
White tea is also effective in reducing the risk of cancer and disease, it lowers blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and it’s good for the teeth with its fluoride content.
Best of all, white tea is known to be a natural antidepressant; so, it has similar qualities to sunlight!
As the colder months are fast approaching, when you’re feeling a little down, try increasing your vitamin D intake and drink lots of white tea! And while it’s still sunny outside, make sure to let your body stack up on all the good vitamin D by enjoying your day in the sun, perhaps with some refreshing iced tea😉
