Sunshine and Sea Bass

A vacation with Joya Cyprus will not only be fantastic for your mind, but equally as nourishing for your health too! Every moment the Sun is beaming tiny photons of light down onto our bodies, plants use these for photosynthesis, and we too benefit from them as they enter our cells. They interact with our cells and allow a multitude of enzymatic reactions to occur, including the well-known creation of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is often called the sunshine vitamin for this reason. Although we can include Vitamin D in our diet as a kind of top-up, its main source needs to be created by our bodies themselves. Vitamin D is involved in the absorption of Calcium and Phosphorus, working alongside nutrients like Magnesium and Boron to create healthy bone density and growth, immune system responses and normal muscle function. So its pretty important, and also sadly difficult to obtain without regular exposure to the sunshine. The unique aspect of holiday vacation here in North Cyprus is the blend of both sunshine almost very day of the year and the opportunity to enjoy a diet rich in the nutrients needed to support and create this vitamin in the body. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, relying on essential fatty acids for its transportation round the body and its storage in the liver. The abundance of both fresh fish and green vegetables with very minimum crop sprays used means it is easy to obtain all the nutrients needed to benefit from this vitamin. The Mediterranean diet is known around the world for its sustainable weight loss and health providing aspects, here in North Cyprus you will find yourself able to go one step further as our soils remain far healthier due to the use of chemical farming products is being kept to a minimum. This may be one of last remaining vacation places on Earth where the purity of food is worth noting!
