Prevent Arthritis And Reduce Inflammation With This Vitamin According To New Research!

Chances are you’ve heard about the importance of getting outside in the sun for some vitamin D.

But what is vitamin D anyway? Why is it so important? How can you meet your vitamin D needs besides hanging out under the sun? How can vitamin D help to reduce inflammation in your body? And what other ways can you reduce inflammation?

These are some excellent questions you ask. Keep reading to find all your answers.

What Is Vitamin D?

Vitamin D has various roles in your body, including:

  • Helps to maintain healthy bones and teeth
  • Supports your immune system
  • Supports your nervous system and your brain
  • Helps to regulate your insulin levels
  • Supports your cardiovascular and lung health
  • Supports your muscle function
  • Can prevent the development of cancer
  • Helps your brain function

 

New Study Found That Vitamin D Can Help Prevent Inflammatory Diseases

Recent research by the University of Birmingham has discovered that maintaining sufficient vitamin D levels can help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.

According to the study, though vitamin D can help prevent the onset of inflammation, it becomes less effective once your body develops an inflammatory disease because it leads to vitamin D insensitivity.

Since most patients with rheumatoid arthritis are deficient in vitamin D, supplementation is important. Findings showed that for patients with rheumatoid arthritis, clinicians may need to prescribe them a much higher dose of vitamin D to make it effective and to correct vitamin D insensitivity issues.

It also seems that the amount of vitamin D needed depends patient to patient. For a patient with rheumatoid arthritis, vitamin D alone may not be enough, but a combination of treatment and supplementation may be needed to effectively improve inflammation.

How To Add More Vitamin D To Your Life

Being in the sun is the best way to get your vitamin D. However, most people in the Western world don’t see much sun during the majority of the year. As fall and winter roll in, there are more clouds than sun for a long time. Even if you live in a place with lots of sunshine year round, chances are you spend a lot of time indoors at your job, at school, with your kids, at social events, at the gym and simply hanging out at home. This results in vitamin D deficiency or the risk of it in most people.

Supplementing with vitamin D becomes non-negotiable. Choose high quality vitamin D supplements and take them daily. You may also turn to superfood blends with vitamin D for part of your supplementation. Organifi Gold, for example, is an excellent choice to add more vitamin D to your life with 640 IU (160% DV). Organifi Complete Protein also has 200 IU (50% DV) of vitamin D in each serving along with other important vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes and plant protein.

Pairing Vitamin D With Turmeric

Pairing vitamin D with turmeric can double your inflammation-reducing powers.

Turmeric is an ancient super spice that has been used for thousands of years in India and other parts of Asia for its medicinal properties. It is gaining increasing popularity in the West and healthcare professionals are beginning to recognize its powers.

There has been countless research done about how turmeric can be effective in reducing inflammation in your body.

Other benefits of turmeric include:

 

How To Add More Turmeric To Your Diet

Sometimes you can find fresh turmeric at health food stores and Asian supermarkets. You can add fresh turmeric to your juices, teas and any dish you wish. A more common way to find turmeric is on the spice rack in a powdered format. Powdered turmeric (and turmeric in general) is an excellent addition to soups, stews, Asian-inspired dishes, baked goods, teas and smoothies.

Since you may not want to add turmeric to every single dish you eat, supplementation becomes very important. Make sure to use high quality supplements, like Organifi Daily Turmeric. Just one serving a day can change your life and reduce inflammation in your body.

How To Absorb Turmeric Better

When it comes to turmeric, absorption is a crucial factor. It is very difficult to absorb turmeric by itself, but with a few tricks, it can turn into a bioavailable superpower.

First of all, turmeric is a fat-soluble herb, which means that turmeric dissolves in fat; without fat, turmeric has a hard time making it into your bloodstream. If you are cooking with turmeric, add a bit of coconut oil, avocado, oily nuts or seeds or other sources of fat to your recipe. If you are taking supplements, like Organifi Daily Turmeric, take it with food that has a little fat in it. It doesn’t have to be a lot, no need to chug down a bottle of oil or even to eat a whole avocado, even just a teaspoon of coconut oil can be enough.

What’s even more important than fat is black pepper. Countless studies show that turmeric becomes more bioavailable when paired with black pepper, in fact, it becomes a whooping 2000 times more effective. This is exactly why we’ve added black pepper to our Organifi Daily Turmeric supplement, as well as to Organifi Gold, an amazing superfood blend source of turmeric.
