 ENJOY SOME SUNSHINE

With the awesome weather and weekend coming up, we encourage you to ENJOY SOME SUNSHINE!
  • Sunshine is good for immunity and bad for viruses
  • The influenza virus is transmitted best at cooler temperatures and low humidity
  • Sunshine makes disease-fighting cells in the skin move faster and work more efficiently
  • Sunlight helps our bodies to make Vitamin D
The World Health Organisation suggests 5 to 15 minutes of casual sun exposure a few times a week is more than sufficient to keep Vitamin D levels topped up. 
A healthy level of immunity can help protect against a lengthy list of ailments, including multiple sclerosis, asthma, depression, heart disease and cancer. Public Health England advises that adults and children over the age of one should consider taking a daily supplement containing ten micrograms of Vitamin D, particularly during autumn and winter. (1)
