SLASH Your Risk of Multiple Sclerosis in HALF (Here’s How)
Lowers risk in young children by 52 percent
Most people think of multiple sclerosis as a condition that develops in middle-aged people.
But did you know that it can strike children as young as three years old?
While only 3 to 5 percent of the one million MS sufferers are children, these individuals face disability landmarks like poor coordination, poor bowel and bladder control, and severe weakness about 10 years earlier than those with adult-onset MS.
Fortunately, researchers have identified a way to help make sure you and your loved ones never face this debilitating autoimmune disease.
It takes 30 minutes a day—and it’s something we can ALL benefit from.
I’m talking about sunlight.
Previous studies have already connected higher levels of vitamin D from the sun to a lower risk of MS, and a slower progression of the disease in those who already have it.
This study showed that sunlight’s protective effect extends to children as well.
For this study, researchers compared the sun exposure of 322 MS patients from 3 to 22 years old to individuals without MS.
What they found was that those who spent 30-60 minutes outside every day had a 52 percent lower risk of multiple sclerosis, compared to those who spent less than 30 minutes outside.
The intensity of the sunlight played a role, with the more intense sunlight in a place like Florida being more protective than the sunlight farther north.
Ultimately, the more sunlight someone was exposed to, the lower the risk of MS.
In addition to boosting your vitamin D levels, sunlight also stimulates immune cells in your skin—and can also change the biological function of your immune cells—two factors that can help protect against autoimmune diseases like MS.
This helps explain why NOT getting enough sun exposure has also been tied to other autoimmune conditions like Crohn’s disease, lupus, and type 1 diabetes.
The answer here is simple…
Spending more time in the sun is one of the best things you can do for your health.
And just a note: To track how much vitamin D you’re getting from the sun at any point in the year from your location, I recommend downloading the Dminder app for your phone.
