When a Black Nottinghamshire family heard that UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock claimed that vitamin D did not appear to have any effect on the coronavirus, they knew he was wrong and set out to raise awareness of the importance of vitamin D. sharpen. especially for people with black skin.
To highlight the importance of this vital hormone, which is especially important in blacks, they selected World Vitamin D Day on November 2nd to add to their Caribbean-inspired vitamin D3 supplement range and glamping wellness retreat on Valley Church Beach in Antigua bring the market.
Paul and Vennetta Johnston and their daughter Chloe had returned to Antigua and their Caribbean roots to found Wild Lotus, a luxury beach glamping resort.
In March 2020, when borders around the world began to close due to COVID-19, they instinctively knew that their best chance of survival was to increase their physical resilience. This meant staying in the sunshine in Antigua. To date, Antigua, with a population of 102,000, has only had 3 COVID deaths.
Vitamin D plays the decisive role.
There is growing evidence that people who are vitamin D deficient have far worse results from COVID-19. In the northern hemisphere, the death rate was highest among people with darker skin, who need longer exposure to sunlight to make the hormone, and among people in nursing homes who rarely go outside.
“It was heartbreaking to see so many COVID deaths, especially among BAME people. This has inspired us to reaffirm the message about the vital role of sunshine in maintaining optimal health. Sending “Sunshine” with love from Antigua to our friends around the world is our little chance to let them know that we think of them and that they will always receive a warm and sunny welcome, “says Vennetta Johnston, Owner at Wild Lotus.
Guests booking the Naturally Wild Wellness Retreat will receive 2 months of ‘Sunshine’, the aptly named Wild Lotus range of vitamin D3 supplements, to help them maintain optimal health in the cold winter months while dreaming of Antigua’s beaches . You can choose a mixture of vitamin D3 with coconut oil or CBD oil. Both ingredients have been shown to be beneficial to health and come from Antigua.
Vitamin D3 is known as the Sunshine Vitamin because it is produced by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Dr. Michael Holick, Scientific Advisor to the Vitamin D Society in Canada, claims that vitamin D deficiency is linked to a number of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease (CVD), dementia, diabetes mellitus (DM), falls, and fractures as well as multiple sclerosis (MS) and respiratory infections.
A 2016 study by the University of Edinburgh concluded that one of the best things anyone in Northern Europe can do for their health is a winter vacation in the sun. A few weeks of brilliant winter sunshine can provide enough vitamin D to last until spring, when the sun in the British Isles has gained some strength.
