Vitamin D and a Healthy Immune System
Everyone knows that Vitamin D is an important vitamin to have in your regiment....however, did you know how important it was to your immune system...and many other systems your body has as well???
It is now clear that vitamin D has important roles in addition to its classic effects on calcium and bone homeostasis. Vitamin D can modulate the innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity and an increased susceptibility to infection.
More importantly....did you three-quarters of U.S. teens and adults are deficient in vitamin D, the so-called "sunshine vitamin," whose deficits are increasingly blamed for everything from cancer and heart disease to diabetes, according to new research! Watch this super short video below to see how Vit D can help with your overall health!
Vitamin D works to fuel your immune system (and practically every other metabolic system in the body) and power it with the juice it needs to be powerful and agile at the same time. Researchers have discovered that vitamin D is involved in the biochemical cellular machinery of ALL cells and tissues in your body. Vitamin D is crucial for good health… I recommend (for adults) taking 5,000 to 10,000 units of Vitamin D3 per day, ideally ½ in the morning and the other ½ in the evening. Children 50% of the adult recommendation.
