Sunlight is known to contain vitamin D for good health. Now researchers gain other benefits from the sun is to help accelerate the recovery of tuberculosis (TB).
Scientists have shown how and why vitamin D from sunlight can speed the recovery of patients with tuberculosis. It also helped to explain the treatment of heliotherapy in the days before there was antibiotic.
In the late 1800s in which there’s still no antibiotics, tuberculosis patients are often sent to a place where patients are encouraged to be outdoor in the sunlight or commonly known as heliotherapy or Phototherapy.
A study found that high doses of vitamin D is made in the body when exposed to sunlight, along with antibiotic treatment really help patients recover more quickly from this contagious lung illness. Study shows dose of this vitamin can reduce the body’s inflammatory response to infection and reduce damage to the lungs.
Sometimes an inflammatory response may occurs that leads to tissue damage in the lung cavity. If it could help heal lung cavity faster, risk of lung damage also decreased. Researchers found a large amount of inflammatory fell more rapidly in patients receiving vitamin D, as well as Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria that causes TB is cleared faster than coughing phlegm in the lungs.
The researchers also said that vitamin D can reduce the inflammatory response without disturbing the action of antibiotics in the body.
