In response to customer demand we are pleased to offer our latest Androv 3000 desktop unit, fitted with narrowband UVB tubes for the production of Vitamin D3 (also called cholecalciferol). Vitamin D3 is naturally manufactured within the skin when 7-dehydrocholesterol reacts with UVB light at wavelengths between 270 and 315 nm. The tubes in this unit produce narrowband UVB primarily around the 310-312nm region to produce Vitamin D. This minimises the chances of skin redness or burning (erythema) which occurs more readily around the 290 to 305nm UV wavelengths. In the Northern Hemisphere between October and May the sun is low in the sky and the sun’s rays are so well filtered by the atmosphere, that very little Vitamin D can be manufactured by the body. There is a great deal of research, easily accessed via the internet, into the side-effects of low Vitamin D levels in the human body, and associations with peripheral vascular disease, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and certain cancers.
