Correcting Baton Rouge vitamin D deficiency increases the immune system to ward off disease and even depression. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Take Vitamin D

A healthy body relies on a healthy, well-functioning immune system. Vitamin D supports a health immune system and helps fight challenges to it. Air pollution is a challenge as it can trigger extreme immune responses: infection, cancer, auto-immune conditions. Inhaled air pollution usually lands on respiratory mucosa and influences the respiratory system. (We hear a lot about the respiratory system today.) Vitamin D supplementation is one strategy research proposes may enhance the immune system to fight such invasion. (3) Vitamin D is reportedly beneficial to improve and keep clinical depression at bay due to its homeostatic, immunomodulatory and neuroprotective roles. (4) Everyone from government, research and industry globally are very aware that vitamin D deficiency is a big problem. All are working to find ways to deal with it and respond to the questions “How much vitamin D should I take daily?” and “How best do we ensure everyone gets that?” (5) Let us discuss this at your next chiropractic visit and make a plan to boost your vitamin D level and let your body to fight health-compromising issues.
