Today we’re going to talk about tanning beds and vitamin D. The sun emits a wavelength that penetrates a certain level of your skin. In that layer of skin, the sun triggers cholesterol to create a chemical change into vitamin D. But, at this stage, it’s an inactive form of vitamin D3 (previtamin D3).

The inactive form of vitamin D has to be activated through the liver and the kidneys. However, certain things can block this conversion and keep you from achieving your optimum vitamin D levels.

The wavelength (UV) we’re talking about is actually made up of three different wavelengths. The wavelength that makes vitamin D is called UV-B. There is also UV-A, but this wavelength does not make vitamin D. UV-A is the wavelength used in tanning beds.

The problem with UV-A is that it penetrates deeper, and it can actually create genetic damage in DNA. It may also increase the risk of melanomas. With the sun, you’re getting UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C, as well as other things. With a tanning bed, you’re only getting UV-A.

What really matters is that you’re getting vitamin D because vitamin D can be protective against many things, including certain types of cancer. It’s also difficult to get the vitamin D you need from food. Getting vitamin D from the sun may be your best option.
