If you’re struggling to get your kick of Vitamin D, our shots can help you in a number of ways:
Vitamin D works with your white blood cells to fight off infections, so if you find yourself more susceptible to coughs and colds, or other respiratory tract viruses, it’s possible that you may be low in Vitamin D. By keeping your Vitamin D levels up, your body’s ability to fend off infections is greater.
- Restore energy / combat fatigue
Tiredness and fatigue can both be caused by lack of Vitamin D. According to a study by Newcastle University, Vitamin D boosts energy from within your body’s cells, which also helps your muscles work more efficiently. If you’re consistently finding yourself physically exhausted, low Vitamin D levels could be a factor. Inevitably, Vitamin D shots can be very useful for aiding athletic performance.
- Improve mood / fight depression
Vitamin D is vital for brain function, so if your levels are low, this can certainly affect your mood and wellbeing. Studies have shown results in which depression has been lifted after subjects underwent Vitamin D therapy.
One of the essential functions of Vitamin D is keeping bones healthy, which it achieves by enhancing your body’s ability to absorb calcium, a mineral that strengthens bones and teeth (around 99% of our calcium is in our bones and teeth). Studies have found that weak bones can most commonly manifest itself through aches and back pain, so such symptoms could be a sign of low Vitamin D levels in the blood.
Similarly, a Vitamin D deficiency is also linked to a loss in bone mineral density, especially when we age. By maintaining Vitamin D levels, doctors believe it reduces the risk of fractures.
In addition to the above, Vitamin D deficiencies have also been linked to muscle pain, the slow healing of wounds, and hair loss in women.
