Our heart still aches a bit for summer with its soft warmth and lightness and many people only try to survive in this part of the year. They keep their fingers crossed to avoid the flu, seasonal distress and to get through the painfully short days.
If you have got tired of such winters, when survival is the goal and you cannot enjoy the days, we have good news for you. We introduced our practical, easy-to-dose, liquid vitamin D product exactly a year ago.
It was no secret that with this timing we wished to contribute to your struggle with winter, adding a little sunshine to the general greyness.
Although the causative relationship is not totally clear yet, it seems very likely that low vitamin D levels are related to winter or seasonal distress. Unfortunately, winter vitamin D deficiency is much more frequent than one would think; according to certain data, it may affect the vast majority of the population. In a Norwegian study the symptoms of depression could be successfully decreased by supplementing vitamin D.
Influenza Unfortunately, it is not only depression but also infections, so common during winter, that make it more difficult to enjoy the cold months.
However, if we could reach the desired vitamin D levels, the frequency of influenza cases could be decreased by 90 per cent. In addition to the flu, it would also be easier to avoid infections that cause other respiratory diseases as vitamin D increases the resistance of the immune system against pathogens.
So for the time being, the supplementation of vitamin D can help you to avoid bad mood and infections. Where else can it be helpful?
During pregnancy, it can contribute to the health of both the mother and the embryo.
Let us mention just one fact to confirm this. Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy increases the risk of developing infant type 1 diabetes, so ensuring the proper vitamin D supply of pregnant women and newborns, we
can contribute to children’s later health.
Appropriate vitamin D intake is equally important in the early years because, according to observations, reaching the desired vitamin D levels in childhood can decrease the chances of developing type 1 diabetes by up to 78
per cent, while its deficiency increases the risk.
Based on the examinations, it seems that vitamin D deficiency during the adult years increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and therefore, it is worth keeping in mind the supplementation of vitamin D.
It’s worth considering if there have been diabetes patients in the family, if you have are overweight or have been diagnosed with insulin intolerance. Unfortunately, these are frequent conditions and it’s worth adjusting
vitamin D supply to them, in addition to the lifestyle changes.
