I first wrote about this in the Endothelial Health Program in 2008. We make sure Jeff gets his daily rays (as well as daily exercise and phytonutrients.) Here's the program again, for new readers.
In the following note, I wrote about the ground-breaking, Noble prize winning research of Dr. Furchgott--he discovered the importance of Nitric Oxide and the process of "photorelaxation" or the vasodilation that occurs thanks to UVB rays.
UVB light attenuates the systemic immune response in CNS autoimmunity.
Here's what they saw in humans....an anti-inflammatory response in MS due to UV ray exposure.
In fact, we already know this happens. It's why UV ray phototherapy is used for patients with psoriasis. UV light increases Treg cells, which in turn reduce inflammatory cells.
