Benefits of Natural Light

When people mention the benefits of letting a little light into your home or business, they’re not just being esoteric. In fact, natural light has a variety of useful health benefits that a lot of people forget about. For starters, whenever you’re exposed to natural sunlight, your body takes in Vitamin D. This essential nutrient plays a variety of different roles within the body, from helping provide bone support to reducing risk of common health issues like weight gain and heart problems. Not bad for just a little bit of additional light.

Science is beginning to explore some other potential benefits of natural light as well. For example, seasonal affective disorder is a condition that leaves around 6% of the population dealing with depression-like symptoms when the seasons change. One of the best ways to treat this condition is through more natural light exposure.
