Touchstone Essentials is an online store and provider of information relating to plant-based diets and healthy inspiration. Alongside organic plant-based nutritional supplements they also offer a variety of reports and articles on different aspects of health and how to improve it naturally.
One of their latest reports is all about how vitamin D affects the immune system. The report begins with the medical history of the sunshine vitamin and how doctors in the 19th century and early 20th century used different forms of vitamin D to successfully treat tuberculosis.
It goes on to explain that these pioneering doctors were not far from the truth as vitamin D plays a vital role in the health of the immune system. Several studies have shown that when humans are deficient in vitamin D, they are more likely to fall ill with colds, flu and other bacterial infections.
This is most likely to happen in the winter months in Northern Hemisphere continents, such as the US and Northern Europe, due to lack of effective sunlight. This is due to the body making most of its effective vitamin D under the skin from the sunlight.
Vitamin D also helps to balance out the immune system and can help to regulate it. This is beneficial in the cases of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes.
In order to get enough vitamin D the report suggests that people should aim to get 15 minutes of direct sunlight a day. Sometimes this isn’t practice or possible, so they should up their intake of wild caught oily fish and mushrooms.
Alternatively they can also take a supplement, such as their Supergreens +D, which combines organic greens with plant based vitamin D, digestive enzymes and probiotics for optimum health.
