5 Vitamins that Impact the Health of Your Body

At Providence Chiropractic, we are more than just chiropractors. We also focus on overall lifestyle. We think that nutrition plays an important role in health and wellness. Chiropractic care is mainly focused on two major body systems. And, like all systems in your body, there are vitamins that will protect these systems to help boost overall strength.
Check out 5 vitamins that we feel helpfully impact the health of your body.

1.) CALCIUM
Calcium is across-the-board essential for your body. Calcium plays a role in the management of capabilities throughout your body. It aids in your cells returning to a normal state. Calcium is also important to the complete development of the nervous system, which works to help drive the movement of nerve cells as the system grows.

Your bones contain calcium, and a healthy supply of calcium helps form your bones’ structure and assists in their growth. Since Calcium is important to numerous systems in your body which includes your muscular system, and your heart, your body will take calcium from your bones. Therefore, if you are not getting enough calcium, it will lead to problems for your bones down the road. Calcium deficiencies can take their toll.

2.) POTASSIUM
Potassium helps regulate your nerve impulses. Potassium and sodium are used by sending electrochemical signals to stimulate responses from cells in the nervous system. Potassium is also important in turning off nerve impulses which prevent the uncontrolled signaling of nerves. If signaling is uncontrolled, it can lead to conditions such as epilepsy.

3.) VITAMIN D
Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for proper bone health. It assists with bone growth and development. Vitamin D also helps your body absorb and process the calcium you ingest, so having a sufficient amount of it in your diet will greatly boost the effectiveness of your daily calcium consumption.

4.) VITAMIN B12
Vitamin B12 is a member of the group of vitamins known as the B Complex. It is vital to the function of your body’s metabolism and your nervous system. B12 works to break complex carbohydrates into the more basic glucose that your brain uses for basic functions. B12 also helps sustain a healthy amount of the nerve insulator myelin that is used for nerve transmission. Their shot form is relied on for supplementation to combat deficiencies. B12 shots provide the nutrient straight to the bloodstream.

5.) VITAMIN K
Vitamin K helps to balance and assist the absorption of calcium much like Vitamin D. It can also help prevent fractures by strengthening bones and strengthening bone density. Vitamin K, as well as the other nutrients mentioned in this blog, can be found in regular dietary resources from bananas to dairy to leafy green vegetables.
