Vitamin D Triggers immune response
View Vitamin D Supplements
Vitamin D has now been shown to be instrumental in triggering T-cell response in the immune system. “When a T cell is exposed to a foreign pathogen, it extends a signaling device or 'antenna' known as a vitamin D receptor, with which it searches for vitamin D,” explains Prof Geisler. “This means that the T cell must have vitamin D or activation of the cell will cease. If the T cells cannot find enough vitamin D in the blood, they won't even begin to mobilize.”
