Health in Tenerife by Vitamin D according to Clinica ArteDental and more

Health in Tenerife regarding the sun Vitamin had been the last thing on my mind,  a while ago.

That was when I went to see Clinica ArteDental. It is beside Lidl on the other side of the TF 5 freeway opposite Alcampo the biggest commercial center by Puerto de la Cruz.

Address of Clinica Arte Dental

  • Centro de Negocios Pedra Redonda L.
  • 10-11/Via de Servicio Las Arenas
  • E-38400 Puerto de la Cruz

ArteDental about much more than dental health care

 I must confess that I should have worshipped this goddess of health much more in the last years.
The director of the clinic Dr.Cubillo himself went to great length to assist me.  He explained the possibilities for correcting my teeth where some implants were of special interest to me.

However, a blood analysis had to help to avoid any premature works. The most important criteria to test were the blood in general as well as its content of  sun vitamin D and Cholesterol.
Naturally, I was mainly concerned about my teeth and skeletal health, as I am not exactly young any more.

The vitamin that is vital for strong bones

My blood test result showed a Vitamin D deficiency of 10 ng/ml. Recommended values would be between 30 and 100 ng/ml, Everything above 100 ng/ml is regarded as toxic, though.

How correct a sun Vitamin short-coming in the blood?

  • 15 minutes of Tenerife sun of strong UVB over lunch time best on your bare back at an angle of 180 degrees
  • Sun bathing for 15 minutes at longer intervals in a day for those on one week holidays and suffering from depression
  • Take prescribed amount of drops or tablets of Vitamin D.
  • Eat fresh Blue fish like Caballa for 8.2mg Vit D/per 100g
  • Or tinned AtĂșn claro o natural for 4.6 mg or AtĂșn en Azeite de Oliva for 5mg
  • Salmon with similar benefit is known as Omiga 3 i.e. a Vitamin D provider
  • Pregnant or breast feeding women must mind eventual contaminated seafood, in general

Life style for dental and bone health in Tenerife

Dr. Cubillo pointed out a very low Vitamin D shortage by Tenerife women that work daily in the fields.  Mostly, you see them during frequent breaks with their legs exposed below the knees to catch the sun. Of course in the end, even the elderly score much more than 15 minutes of vitamin D that way until the end of the day.

The women know that a slightly reddish skin is the warning by the sun to get out of her way for a while. They all have heard from relatives or by watching television about skin diseases through overexposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. To the contrary, taking too high a dose of supplements from the chemist is much more possible and will be toxic.   Mind, the female farm workers also tend to wear a traditional hat similar to that of the man in the photo above.

Altitudes, the ocean and sea shores to mind health in Tenerife

By the way, the ultra violet beams of the Tenerife sun are not only extra powerful by Mount Teide.

That concerns Spain's highest peak with or without snow.

The Guanche natives of Tenerife had more than respect for the warm rays  that kiss our skins from above.

That's why they built step pyramids near the costs where they face the sun.

Baby and children health benefits by the sun

How ensure it?

Talk to your medical practitioner about the best time to expose your babies or children to the sun.
In fact, Dr. Cubillo seems to have found the optimum solution to take children to beaches.

By the way, sun blockers hinder any natural forming of vitamin D by humans and all mammals. It's not good enough if your cat likes to lie in the warm sun on a window sill behind glass. It needs to catch it outside, unless it's a white cat in Tenerife. Then, it must be strictly monitored.

A healthy mind in Tenerife

I agree with the top dental physician at Clinica Arte Dental that the sun on Tenerife beaches by Puerto de la Cruz also keeps Depression at bay.  And that its  paradise garden is an oasis and an additional blessing for the heart and the soul, as you certainly know...

Vitamin D for health in Tenerife to avoid cancer

No real proof exists that Vitamin D plays the primary role to prevent vicious cancer. My late husband had Pancreatic Metastasis.  At one stage, his personal physician for nutrition pointed out the need for Vitamins and Minerals with Vitamin B17 being the most important of allHot tip for best place to buy Vitamin D in Puerto de la Cruz is the health shop Sanct Bernhard in Calle La Hoya,58.
