It’s winter, and that means short days and long, slow, dark nights. Are you getting enough vitamin D? This may seem like a weird question, but vitamin D is essential to your health. It helps you feel more positive, gives a great boost to your immune system during cold and flu season, and has many other health benefits. Rocky Mountain Dental Care wants to make sure that you are getting enough vitamin D, because it helps the body process calcium to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
The high altitude sun often provides enough vitamin D in the summertime, but for some people, it just is not enough. You can get this vital nutrient from supplements, and it is even infused into some drinks; it also occurs naturally in broccoli, cheese, and other foods. So take care of your health, and your teeth, by making sure you are getting enough vitamin D.
