BENEFITS OF NATURAL LIGHT
Daylighting factor needed for a healthy life
The availability of natural light is one of the most valued living conditions to evaluate the comfort of a house or space. The natural light that comes from the sun's rays benefits us more than we think. People who live in hot climates, or with more hours of sunshine tend to suffer less health problems. Among the multiple benefits we find:
2. Better mood
According to the study published in the scientific journal "The Lancet", sun's radiation affects serotonin. In addition, sunlight helps prevent the onset of stress, anxiety and depression, as well as regulate sleep.
1. Activa las defensas
Sun can increase the number of white blood cells (neutrophils and lymphocytes) that are the first line of defense of our body.
Vitamin D is essential for the mineralization of bones and teeth. The powerful rays of the sun are responsible for activating it.
Natural light reduces eye strain and irritability, this is why it is considered an antidepressant
5. Prevents acne
Solar radiation prevents and controls acne. In addition, solar rays can help to remit skin diseases such as psoriasis or dermatitis.
Ultraviolet rays decreases melatonin levels, the sleep hormone, and you feel more awake. In this way, at night the pineal gland secretes this hormone in large quantities and that will facilitate rest.
7. Fat control
During the sunniest months, cholesterol levels lows down, as sunlight is essential for metabolizing it. Another thing to consider is that during the months with more hours of light, people get more exercise and that contributes to reduce cholesterol.
8. Blood pressure
With sun exposure, the skin arteries dilate and the amount of blood concentrated in the organs is reduced. This lows down blood pressure.
10. Improves attention
It maintains the nervous system in shape, and increases the capacity of perception, concentration and the ability to take decisions.
11. Sex life
Sun rays increase testosterone levels, the hormone of desire. In the summer, libido rises.
The sun activates the effects of vitamin D, which promotes natural protection against certain types of cancer. For example, who sunbathes regularly has a lower incidence of breast or colon cancer.
The benefits of natural lighting are not only because of the amount and type of light, there are other effects as well. When a light reflector is installed on top of a light patio, the result is not limited to a staggering increase in the level of illumination inside the patio. It also happens that throughout the day the rays reflected in the walls move, causing pleasant sensations that redound to the well-being of the residents in the spaces adjacent to the patio.
We must not forget that ultraviolet radiation can also be harmful if it is not tempered, so we must take precautions. The use of Deplosun solar tubes is a great ally, since it fulfills the 12 benefits of natural light, but always with quantity and quality control (UV filtering).
