Tip 2: The Importance of Vitamin D

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays a key role in your daily life and is a critical component for a future full of health and happiness.  In an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Michael Holick, an internationally recognized expert in Vitamin D, highlights the importance of Vitamin D in the prevention of a wide variety of health conditions.

We believe Vitamin D deficiency in both children and adults is far too common. Insufficient levels of the vitamin in children can lead to developmental problems, skeletal deformities and weak immune systems. With adults, Vitamin D deficiency can place a person at risk for osteoporosis, muscle weakness, balance problems, bone fractures, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, hypertension, certain types of cancer and many other types of autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases and cardiovascular diseases.

In our opinion and as outlined by Dr. Holick in the above referenced article, adequate amounts of Vitamin D cannot be obtained from the  typical diets most people eat. It takes a reasonable amount of exposure to the sun, a nutrient-rich diet and a daily Vitamin D supplement to maintain a sufficient level of Vitamin D in your body.

Ask us if you are getting the proper amounts of Vitamin D at your next visit to our clinics or send us a message from our website. We can check Vitamin D levels in patients and will provide you with the guidance and advice needed to make sure you and your family are maintaining the proper levels of Vitamin D in your bodies.

For your convenience, we also offer an excellent Vitamin D supplement in all of our four Cincinnati area Baker Chiropractic clinic locations.

Supplying your body with proper amounts of Vitamin D is truly one of the best Tips for Healthy and Happy Living we can give you.

It will serve you well both now and as you grow older!

Yours in Health and Wellness,
