Vitamin D is the sunniest healthy vitamin we West Des Moines 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 goal of our West Des Moines chiropractic care is balance. So let’s look at Vitamin D – what occurs when we don’t have an ample supply of it and how we can grow the amounts of it in our systems.
First, vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin, so a low-fat diet might 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 regulates how calcium binding proteins work in bone and kidneys which also relies on Vitamin K. (1) That’s a tale for another time!
Second, Vitamin D3 deficiency 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 advantageous in lowering risks for cardiovascular disease (4) as of today’s research, but patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo advantage from improved Vitamin D levels. Vertigo attacks did not recur after supplementation with Vitamin D. (5) So Executive Chiropractic of Iowa encourages you to sit down and discuss your Vitamin D level at your next West Des Moines chiropractic visit and potentially increasing it.
So get out in the West Des Moines 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.
