Everything You Need To Know About Your Immune System & Vitamin D
Everything you need to know about your immune system & vitamin D
Stay alert - and stay healthy
Have we ever been so aware of doing everything humanly possible to boost our immune systems? It’s natural to feel kinda powerless at a moment like this.
The good news is that researchers believe vitamin D plays a significant role in supporting the immune system.
Here’s the science bit: vitamin D is part of a complex process in which white blood cells become ‘primed’ to help fight infection, according to studies from the University of Copenhagen and Bispebjerg Hospital in Denmark.
So how can we get more vit D in our lives?
Well, vitamin D naturally forms in our skin in response to sunlight, and that’s where most of our daily recommended dose comes from. But because we’re not outside as much as we normally are right now, we need to look at other options.
Vitamin D is found in foods such as oily fish, egg yolks and some fortified foods including breakfast cereals. But even the healthiest, most colourful, most well-balanced diet is unlikely to deliver all the vit D we need.
So when we’re spending so much time indoors - and in autumn and winter months when we’re getting way less sun - the NHS advise taking a daily supplement with 10 micrograms of vitamin D, like nutriburst Healthy Muscles & Bones, with vitamin D and calcium.
It’s vital for energy, muscle strength and bone health - and vitamin D helps us absorb more of it. These nutrients are a total power couple, and all wrapped up in a deliciously chewy citrus-flavoured gummy bite.
Stay healthy and let us know how you get on here. We’re looking out for you.
