TIP OF THE MONTH: Take Vitamin D A healthy body relies on a healthy, well-functioning immune system. Vitamin D plays a beneficial role in supporting a health immune system and helps combat challenges to it. Air pollution is a challenge as it can activate excessive immune responses: infection, cancer, auto-immune conditions. Inhaled air pollution usually lands on respiratory mucosa and affects the respiratory system. (The news is filled with talk about the respiratory system today.) Vitamin D supplementation is a strategy research suggests may enhance the immune system to resist such invasion. (3) Vitamin D is reportedly advantageous to improve and keep clinical depression at bay due to its homeostatic, immunomodulatory and neuroprotective roles. (4) Many from government, research and industry globally know that vitamin D deficiency is an extensive problem. They are seeking for ways to deal with it and answer the questions “How much vitamin D should I take daily?” and “How best do we make sure everyone gets that?” (5) Let us talk about this at your next chiropractic appointment and set a plan to increase your vitamin D level and permit your body to fight health-compromising challenges.
