Vitamin D is the sunniest healthy vitamin we Sitka folks need! It equals out us humans. It props our immune systems up. It maintains the body’s equilibrium - down to our very cells - balanced. A mission of our Sitka chiropractic care is balance. So let’s look at Vitamin D – what takes place when we don’t have an ample supply of it and how we can grow the amounts of it in our systems.
For starters, vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin, so a low-fat diet could lend itself to Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D has an effect on the soaking up and depository of calcium and evokes phosphorous absorption. It also determines how calcium binding proteins work in bone and kidneys which also relies on Vitamin K. (1) That’s a tale for another time!
To follow that up, Vitamin D3 shortage is stated to lead to osteoporosis, cancer, immunological and infectious diseases. (2) Dietary consumption of Vitamin D and calcium is lower in breast cancer patients. (3) Vitamin D may not be beneficial in lowering risks for cardiovascular disease (4) as of today’s research, but folks with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo advantage from better Vitamin D levels. Vertigo attacks did not repeat after supplementation with Vitamin D. (5) So Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka encourages you to sit down and discuss your Vitamin D level at your next Sitka chiropractic visit and potentially increasing it.
So get out in the Sitka sun, enjoy a nice dinner of salmon, and consider taking an easy capsule of Vitamin D! It’s one of the best things for us to do for our bones, kidneys, mood, immune system and much more.
