For the study, the team led by Prof. Dr. Peter Billigmann examined a group of participants consisting of around 30 ambitious recreational sportsmen and professional athletes between the ages of 18 and 60. The study had a three-month duration during which the participants carried on with their normal training programme. At the beginning and at the end of the study the metabolic parameter “total creatine kinase” and “myoglobin”, as well as various physiological performance parameters were measured. In addition, the participants of the study were divided into three groups according to their vitamin D serum level – ideal range, vitamin D deficiency and serious vitamin D deficiency. Thereafter they were allotted varying amounts of sun tanning time in the mon amie Collarium® based on the vitamin D serum level, skin type and subjective perception. First of all, the result of this study proves that the vitamin D serum levels were verifiably increased by an individual sun tanning session in the mon amie Collarium®. Secondly, the catabolic metabolic state was enhanced and can thus be seen as a direct indication of improved regeneration and viewed as an indirect indication for improved physical performance.
