At European Spa, we care about your health and are here to educate you on Vitamin D and tanning. As you probably know……..Vitamin D is also known as the Sunshine or Happy Vitamin!

But did you know that due to our relatively weak sunshine throughout the year, over 90% of Canadians are deficient in Vitamin D. Health Canada lists tanning beds as a source of vitamin D. Given the controlled nature of the UVB emitted by our indoor tanning equipment, tanning beds are the most effective source of vitamin D available to Canadians. Most of our tanning beds emit sufficient UVB to optimize vitamin D production. Please ask us which ones are more effective for increasing your Vitamin D levels.

  • A proper balance of Vitamin D is important for your immune system. Vitamin D helps fight diseases like breast, colon, ovarian, and prostate cancer as well as multiple sclerosis and diabetes.
  • Vitamin D reduces Depression and can help with weight loss.
  • Vitamin D helps stimulate muscle recovery so it is recommended for bodybuilders, athletes and people who frequent the gym or exercise.

For fast, safe results, try our high performance tanning equipment. Get a fabulous base tan in as little as 3 or 4 sessions. Will not dry your skin like traditional tanning equipment, therefore your tan will last much longer. This means you do not have to come as often to maintain your golden colour. Perfect to use right before a tropical holiday or special event. Or call the spa at 780-481-5200 and we will answer all your questions.

Sunsport Bed
Are you looking for a tan that develops quickly and requires a minimum number of visits to maintain? If so, the Sunsport Bed is for you!

Most tanning beds use UVB rays, which, while great for boosting vitamin D levels, accelerate your skin’s natural exfoliation process. The faster your skin sheds, the faster your tan fades.

The Sunsport Bed filters UVB rays to less than 1%, allowing UVA rays to shine brighter, resulting in a healthy-looking, longer-lasting tan. In only 3-4 visits, the Sunsport Bed allows you to boost your base tan, with only 1-2 visits needed to give your existing tan a boost. Your golden glow can then be maintained with as little as 3-4 visits a month.
