Vitamin D deficiency can cause an increased risk for health conditions, such as autism and Alzheimer’s disease. This sunshine vitamin, which we primarily get from sunlight, is essential to one’s health. There are types of food that can also be a good source of this vitamin.
Seniors should not deprive themselves of vitamin D. The amount of vitamin D a person gets from sunlight decreases with age. In our home health care services, we incorporate this essential vitamin into their diet. Having sufficient vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium more effectively. It is also known to aid in keeping proper phosphate and calcium levels. The sunshine vitamin can also:
- reduce inflammation
- aid in serotonin and dopamine synthesis
- increase the level of glutathione in your body
Low vitamin D levels can lead to certain diseases. It can be a causal factor to not only autism and Alzheimer’s but also to:
- neuromuscular and seasonal affective disorders
- psoriatic arthritis
- heart disease
- cancer of the breast or prostate
- pneumonia and schizophrenia
Our home care services can help your senior loved ones get the sufficient vitamin D they need. We have qualified healthcare professionals and caregivers to ensure and deliver proper support and assistance to you and your loved ones.
