You probably know what Vitamin D is and where and how you can find it. In food, this vitamin is easily found in cheese, butter, fatty fish, and healthy cereals among others. An even more natural way to get more vitamin D is from the sun – the most powerful and rich source of vitamin D you can find. Research shows that patients with pulmonary fibrosis can often benefit from the protective effects of this vitamin. In a Pulmonary Fibrosis News article, called “Pulmonary Fibrosis Study Points to Protective Effects of Vitamin D”, written by Margarida Azevedo, in late 2015, you can read that “vitamin D, often found at low levels in pulmonary fibrosis patients, has been shown to regulate the fibrotic process and be a useful agent in the treatment of fibrosis in different organs, such as bones, kidneys, and liver.”
In this video, shared by Just In Health, Dr. Justin Marchegiani discusses some of the benefits of vitamin D and also reviews vitamin D laboratory testing and ways to detect vitamin D deficiency.
Dr. Justin Marchegiani is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a degree in Kinesiology and Pre-medical studies. Dr. Justin has completed his Doctorate degree in Chiropractic Medicine from Life West University.
