Five Health Reasons To Enjoy More Sunlight

Whether it’s a brand new bi-fold door or a fantastic new conservatory or orangery.

One of the biggest selling points is the light that it will bring into your home that will make the rooms seem bigger, fresher and cleaner (as well as making your home a lovelier place to live, you will also have added monetary value to your property.)

The best bit though is the Positive Affects to your health.

It Makes You Happy

Your body will naturally produce more of a hormone called Serotonin when the body receives sunlight. This is known as the “happy” hormone and the more we produce the naturally happier we are. Sunlight is the free mood enhancer without the hangover.


Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression the NHS estimates to affect approximately one in fifteen people in the UK.

It is caused by lack of natural light and what better treatment could there be than by relaxing in your new conservatory or orangery.

Essential Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential to help our bodies absorb calcium and phosphate from our food. Calcium and phosphate are important for healthy bones and muscles.  In extreme cases can cause rickets which causes bones to become soft and week, and osteomalacia which causes bone pain and tenderness

Sunlight is the best known way to boost Vitamin D into your system. So let that light flood in!

Keeps us alert and awake

Sunlight affects how alert or sleepy we feel, the reason for this is our brain makes more melatonin when subjected to low levels of natural sunlight. Melatonin is the hormone that makes us sleepy. This also has a positive effect on having a good sleeping pattern because if you have lots of natural light shining through your downstairs living space keeping you awake, when you trundle off to bed you brain will soon react to the darkness of the bedroom, produce more melatonin and get you soundly off to sleep.

Stress Reliever

Stress is something we all experience and it is caused by a variety of factors such as family and work issues. One way to relieve stress is through exposure to sunlight. Once again this releases the “happy” hormone Serotonin. Once this is triggered you can tuck yourself away in your warm cosy sunlit room with a nice cuppa and those crazy kids and bosses won’t seem that bad.
