Happier and Healthier with Vitamin D
Now that we have all been socially distancing for some time during this pandemic, don’t forget to take advantage of the sun and absorb some Vitamin D. Did you know that it helps boost brain function, improves brain health, and protects against gum disease? I’m sure many of you knew that already but did you know that taking K2 helps push Vitamin D3 into the bones to prevent arterial calcification?
If you haven’t listened to the Reflection Health podcast on the Dental Podcast Network, I highly recommend it! In their podcast, they discuss nutrition and whole body health.
Another great podcast episode to listen to is Episode 205 on A Tale of Two Hygienists where Stasha Gominak discusses the importance of how a little bit of vitamin deficiency can cause long-term impacts on the body, including airway paralysis during REM sleep and the important to find the right dosage for each individual to have the most optimal health.
