Thyroid Health: Why Is Vitamin D So Important?

 

The major function of vitamin D in our body is

   1. to help your body use the right levels of calcium and phosphorus from our food.

   2. to build and maintain strong bones, teeth and nails – to control the body’s calcium levels and helps with bone mineralization thereby preventing osteoporosis and rickets.

   3.  to support brain health.

The latest research in 2010 has shown that inadequate intake of vitamin D may accelerate cognitive decline. A 60% increase risk of cognitive decline was found in people with low vitamin D status!! Can you say brain fog?

   4. extremely important to feed our immune system health in order to fight infections.

   5. to decrease inflammation in the body.

   6. necessary to prevent autoimmune disease via plugging up the “holes” and tightening the cell junctions in “Leaky Gut”.

VITAMIN D MALABSORPTION: GLUTEN AND CELIAC DISEASE

Many people who eat inflammatory foods such as gluten have a hard time absorbing vitamin D supplementation. In fact there is a high correlation between vitamin D malabsorption and celiac disease.
