How to LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE Naturally Overnight? Effective Ways to Lower Your BLOOD PRESSURE Quick
Study: The Sun Can Lower Your Blood Pressure
The claim:Sunlight may make things easier on your heart by lowering your blood pressure. Researchers from the Universities of Southampton and Edinburgh report in theJournal of Investigative Dermatologythat sunlight exposure increases nitric oxide (NO) levels, which can decrease blood pressure.
The research:Scientists assessed 24 people exposed to tanning lamps for two, 20-minute sessions. Half of them were covered in foil and not exposed to UVA rays. Those exposed to UVA light had dilated blood vessels, reduced blood pressure, and an increase in NO. The blood pressure drop was small—about two to five points—but noteworthy.
What it means:Martin Feelisch, PhD, a professor at the University of Southampton who conducted the research, believes NO gets into the skin and blood through photolysis (the process in which protons break down chemicals), which breaks NO away from its binding partner—which could be a protein or another celluar constituent that sits in the skin—and releases it into the blood.
Sunlight is also known to produce vitamin D, which has been shown to alleviate hypertension, but the vitamin is generated mostly through UVB rays—not UVAs. This explains why Dr. Feelisch and his colleagues did not see a change in vitamin D levels. “It takes a relatively long time for vitamin D to be produced; our effects are almost immediate,” Dr. Feelisch says.
The bottom line: This research looks interesting, but it's preliminary. For now, work with your health care provider to manage your blood pressure and stick with sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays whenever you're outside.
