As the days get shorter and darker you may feel your motivation and mood start to slip. There is a very simple and easy way to prevent this from happening. By taking a good quality Vitamin D supplement you can help your body deal with the lack of sunlight. Vitamin D has been proven to help with the release of neurotransmitters. Vitamin D acts as a hormone that turns on the release of our happy neurotransmitter known as Seratonin. Seratonin is a very important neurotransmitter. It helps us regulate our sleep wake cycle that can be disrupted by the darker days. It also helps us feel happy and motivated.

Everybody in the state of Minnesota, especially, should be taking a minimum of 1000 IUs of good quality Vitamin D3. You should buy all of your supplements from a trusted health care professional. What you see is not always what you get. Going to Target and buying the cheapest supplement will give you the cheapest quality. Supplements are not regulated by the FDA so what the bottle says does not necessarily mean that is what you are getting.
At Club West Chiropractic we work with a line of vitamins and minerals that are pre and post tested. What that means is the quality is tested before the processing, and tested afterwards to be sure the integrity of the supplement was not disrupted during the process.
