How good are daylight lamps really?

As soon as the cold season arrives in the country, the warming rays of sunlight become rarer and the days shorter. However, the body needs a certain amount of UV light for the formation of vitamin D, which ensures the strength of bones, prevents skin diseases and is important for the release of certain hormones – these include endorphins (“happiness hormones”). Without a certain amount of daylight, mental problems such as the so-called “winter depression” can also develop.
