Fall has arrived! And with the change of seasons comes the return of the “seasonal” illnesses - colds and flus. But…why would these viruses and bacteria only come around during the fall and winter months? The truth is they don’t, we are exposed to these viruses and bacteria every single day. The state of our immune system is what determines who gets sick and who stays healthy!
Our immune response is heavily influenced by lifestyle factors, two of which are stress and vitamin D! Clearly, the amount of stress in our lives isn’t seasonal (which is why people still get colds and the flu in the spring and summer months). Here’s the “seasonal part”, humans require sunlight to produce vitamin D and during the fall and winter months the amount of sun we’re exposed to is reduced. Vitamin D helps regulate the body’s response to foreign invaders; so this vitamin D deficiency leads to reduced immune function which makes us more susceptible to colds and flus.
How do we best ensure our bodies are sufficient with vitamin D? Innate Choice D-Sufficiency Drops is one solution that has helped individuals fight against colds and flus.
