THE SUN’S BRIGHT SIDE: URINARY HEALTH BENEFITS
It’s been a hard-earned summer, and we hope you’re letting it shine on you, literally, by spending more time in the sun and enjoying activities that are safe. Yes, the sun offers substantial health benefits, as long as we don’t overdo it.
In addition to brightening our days, the sun is an essential source of vitamin D, a vital compound that many of us could use more of – 42% of Americans are deficient. The vitamin D we absorb from the sun improves bone health, supports the immune system, and enhances our moods. But maybe you knew that.
Here’s what you might not know: Vitamin D can benefit urinary health. New research suggests it could possibly reduce the risks of prostate cancer, for example, and other tests have shown men with low levels of vitamin D had higher chances of being diagnosed with the disease.
Separate research has linked low vitamin D levels to higher rates of urinary tract infections (UTIs). This is especially important in the summer, when dehydration and humidity contribute to bacterial growth in the urinary tract, which can lead to infection.
So, beam up. The sun, like ice cream, can make life better when enjoyed in moderation. Do wear UVprotective sunglasses and sun block to protect your skin and eyes, and then allow the sun to shine in your life!
A few of our offices have changes locations recently to be more convenient and comfortable for our patients.
