One big benefit of playing Pokémon GO is that it exposes you to sunlight, which is required to make vitamin D: skin cells use energy from the Sun to turn cholesterol into one of several fatty compounds collectively known as ‘vitamin D’, a hormone needed for absorbing molecules vital to your diet, like the calcium in bones. Vitamin D deficiency raises the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and other conditions, and yet almost 1 billion people worldwide have insufficient levels and over 40% of Americans are deficient. And while some try to compensate by popping pills (vitamin D supplements reduce mortality by 11%), too much can have harmful effects.

Low vitamin D levels are usually a consequence (not cause) of disease, and the best source is safe exposure to sunlight. Getting enough light at certain times of year could also help fight the depression associated with seasonal affective disorder (SAD). So for a Pokémon GO player, walking to your nearest Poké stop to maintain a daily streak bonus and catch a few creatures might provide all the sunshine you need to stay healthy.
