Vitamin D(ivine)

VITAMIN D – Is The Amazing Wonder Nutrient That May Prevent Or Cure Seven Common Diseases!

 

Lack of Vitamin D has been linked to: Cancer, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Autism.

 

This amazing vitamin is available to everyone for free, because it comes from sunlight. Exposing your skin to sunlight for at least 30minutes three times a week without sunscreen is the minimum requirement each person needs, sunscreen acts as a barrier and stop vitamin D getting into the body. We should all be trying to get at least this amount every week.  Contrary to some people’s belief, sunlight does not penetrate through clothes to sufficiently produce vitamin D.

Its sounds simple, and most of us think we are getting enough. The problem is 85% of us are not getting enough “sunshine vitamin” which helps fight bone loss, infection, and abnormal cell growth.

Not having enough vitamin D may not be something that people think about or notice, but it impacts a large amount of functions in your body including:

 

  • Heart health

At Chiropractic Dubai our doctors see a lot of patients who may have pain, tiredness and other signs because they are deficient in Vitamin D. We encourage our patients to get enough Vitamin D from sunlight because it’s important for strong bones and is a vital vitamin for overall health and wellbeing.  Our Chiropractic doctors often refer vitamin D testing so that patients can understand their vitamin D status and act upon it.
