Vitamin D and Immune Health in Evergreen

Chiropractic Evergreen CO Inflammation

Low Vitamin D levels are associated with poor immune function. Studies show that patients with low Vitamin D have an increased risk of infection and autoimmune diseases. Likewise, patients with healthy levels of Vitamin D have a stronger immune response against pathogens and a quicker recovery from illness. These discoveries reinforce the importance of Vitamin D for our immune health. At Health and Harmony Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Evergreen, we can test your Vitamin D levels and then help you with diet and supplement recommendations to keep you in the optimal range.

Vitamin D in Evergreen

Vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic in our society. This is no minor issue as Vitamin D regulates gene expression in over 900 vital organs and functions and is part of the prevention of the most common areas of disease and suffering. Insufficient Vitamin D levels can lead to issues with the immune, cardiovascular, respiratory, and central nervous systems. In our world today, it is difficult to get healthy Vitamin D levels through our diet and day-to-day activities which is why so many people don't realize they have a deficiency. Low Vitamin D has been associated with the following conditions:

  • Lowered immune function
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Infections
  • Hypertension
  • Depression

Testing For Vitamin D Levels

It is important to be aware of your Vitamin D level, as it can indicate many other issues within the body. If test results indicate low Vitamin D, high-quality supplements can help increase your Vitamin D to a healthy level. Recent tests during the Covid-19 pandemic have shown that when someone has optimal levels of Vitamin D, they are more resistant to the virus, can recover quicker, and their symptoms are less severe.
