Osteoporosis is a dangerous illness that is affecting millions of Americans every year. If you already have osteoporosis, then don’t worry — there are well-tested methods available today as osteoporosis therapy and medications.
But if you do not have osteoporosis — well, prevention is better than cure. We have to do our best to lessen our chances of developing this dreadful disease. We can do that by eating a healthy amount of calcium and getting enough vitamin D.
Vitamin D and Osteoporosis
You might have heard that calcium is important for us to develop healthy bones and prevent osteoporosis. Less known, however, is the fact that vitamin D works with calcium to strengthen our bones. Vitamin D stimulates the gut to absorb more calcium — and that’s aside from its other health benefits like improving muscle health.
You can only get calcium through your food, but you can generate vitamin D from sunlight exposure. If your skin is exposed to direct sunlight, it begins generating vitamin D.
Thus, people living in sunny areas are more likely to have healthy vitamin D levels. In contrast, people living in areas with less sun are more likely to suffer from vitamin D deficiency. The amount of vitamin D you generate is also affected by your skin color and the season.
What is UVTR Technology?
UltraViolet Transmission Ray Technology is SolTech+’s new product, designed to keep you warm, happy, and most of all, healthy under the sun.
As previously mentioned, sunlight is important for our vitamin D, but too much exposure can increase the risk of skin cancer and other skin-related illnesses. These are caused by UV rays, and how it reacts with the delicate organic material of our skin.
SolTech+ has developed a technology that allows you to reap the benefits of sunbathing without the risks. UVTR cloth is made of special layers that allow sunlight to pass through but filter out UV rays. This way, you’re protected from the worst of the sun, all the while benefiting from its graces.
You can safely play, work out, or travel under the sun without fear of UV damage by wearing sun-safe clothes.
UVTR Technology and osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a silent killer — unless you take a medical scan for it, you don’t even know if you have it. Thus, it’s only logical for us to do what we can to avoid these terrible circumstances by eating healthily and getting as much vitamin D as possible, which our UVTR technology helps with.
