Our bay is privileged to have sun most of the year. The sun is natural medicine that requires the body and emotions to have balance. That is why, almost instinctively, travelers prefer to go to places where the sun is abundant.
The healing power of the sun is not a recent novelty. Since ancient times, the star king has been worshiped, and it is not for less. The qualities that this star has with its own fire, is due to the fact that its light and heat generate all forms of life. When the sun begins to shine on Banderas Bay it makes it look even more beautiful.
How does the sun act on our body?
The sun is not only admirable for its beauty at dawn, at noon, or at sunset, but also for the magic with which it acts on living beings. When we sunbathe, our body chemistry reacts in amazing ways. Ultraviolet rays help produce and metabolize vitamin D in the skin and fix calcium in the bones. Without this process, calcium simply would not be absorbed in the intestine. Only 10 to 15 minutes every third day are enough for this natural process to take place in the body. That is, it produces vitamin D and favors the absorption of calcium.
The healing power of the sun, as preventive medicine, is appreciated at an early age. These sun baths are recommended to newborn babies to combat the jaundice (yellowish appearance of the skin). The argument is that the sun helps the body release a substance that helps white blood cells carry oxygen to the brain and throughout the body. This strengthens the immune system. The same goes for adults.
Reduces cardiovascular diseases
The sun's rays are also useful for metabolizing cholesterol in the blood, preventing it from sticking to the arteries. Therefore, cardiovascular diseases are reduced. In addition, it regulates blood pressure, which is why it is said to have medicinal effects.
There are countries in the world that, due to their location, are not lucky enough to have sun for a good part of the year. In these nations, the rate of depression and stress in people is very high and various diseases manifest themselves in the same way. Even in winter when there is less sun, sadly the suicide statistics increase.
The answer is that UV rays stimulate the production of a neurotransmitter called serotonin, a substance related to the sensation of well-being in the body and which is also involved in the processes of regulation of sleep and sexual behavior. That is why places with enough sun, like our Banderas Bay, are ideal for romance.
Life on the beach is better
With only half an hour's exposure to the sun, this process is achieved on a daily basis, which contributes to the rejuvenation of the skin. In Puerto Vallarta and Bahía de Banderas we are fortunate to have sun almost all year round.
