Are we getting enough of the sunshine vitamin?
Many of us that live in the northern hemisphere simply don’t have enough sunshine to make adequate amounts of vitamin D, never mind to optimise our immune system. The national Institute for Health and Care Excellence suggests that 1 in 5 of us in the UK have either low or insufficient Vitamin D levels.
Vitamin D is vital to optimise our killer T cells within the immune system!
Vitamin D is vital to optimise our killer T cells within the immune system, with inadequate vitamin D these cells will not be able to respond and mount an attack and fight off infections in the body. Vitamin D also decreases the bad cytokines in the body, which can cause inflammation leading to further health issues later down the line.
Lockdowns have exacerbated these low levels of Vitamin D making us more susceptible to catching unwanted bugs; but can also present other symptoms such as fatigue, muscle stiffness, headaches, and low mood.
So what can we do?
Relying on the sunshine simply isn’t enough outside of the summer months. With coronavirus very much still present we need to ensure that we are boosting our immune system to protect us.
Supplementing Vitamin D is a must in the winter months. Support your immune with supplementation of D3 which is a far superior form than D2.
Cytoplan is a good brand giving you a basic level of vitamin D3 every day, and you can use the code cyt61375-10 to receive 10% off your order. Grab your D3 here.
