This is the dreaded time of year when the sun has a waning angle and gives us less of its beautiful heat throughout the day. This means that our skin doesn’t get the sunlight contact that we used to get in the summer. However, did you know that the sun hitting our skin causes us to create the most amazing “vitamin”? This is how our body creates vitamin D!
I call it a “vitamin”, because newer research is considering the “vitamin” to be more of a hormone. It is also vital in a whole lot of processes in the body! That means that we have to make sure that we have the right level in our body. Most people need supplementation over the mid fall to the mid spring as we don’t get to see the sun as much as our body’s need.
What might Vitamin D be good for?
- Autism prevention
- Cold and Flu protection
- Muscle strength and growth
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
This is just a short list of the possible benefits of vitamin D. However, not all supplements are made the same. Make sure that you are getting the best that you can, because throwing away money is not a smart idea. We at Cannon Pointe Chiropractic carry the best and most absorbable vitamin D!
Remember that you should consult a physician if you have any of the above.
