Do you struggle with Chronic Sinusitis? If you do, it might be due to a lack of this vitamin.
We know specifically that if there isn’t enough of this vitamin, the mechanical barrier that lines the sinuses will break down, allowing germs and allergens to get into the deeper levels of the sinus, which leads to chronic sinusitis.
Without enough of this vitamin you will not make Cathelicidin. Cathelicidin is made by the immune cells that are on the surface of the sinuses, and it fights bacteria, viruses and fungi. You can imagine that if you don’t have enough cathelicidin, you’re much more likely to get a sinus infection and not be able to beat it.
If there isn’t enough of this vitamin, the cells that fight infection will not respond like they should. This can allow an infection to linger for a long time.
In the absence of this vitamin, the sinuses will become inflamed all the time.
Numerous studies have found that people with chronic sinusitis have low levels of this vitamin.
One study connected people with chronic sinusitis with greater bone erosion in the sinus from the infection. It is likely that this bone erosion is due to the lack of this vitamin.
All of these immune effects are also found in the intestines. This is why very often intestinal and sinus problems seem to go hand in hand.
