Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It’s a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a varied range of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Chiropractic Associates encourages our Preston chiropractic patients to check and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Chiropractic Associates is confident that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant vitamin D deficiency is correlated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like lung, pancreatic, colorectal, kidney, breast is related to low vitamin D levels. Diabetes, rickets, rheumatic arthritis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer diseases, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults are too. (1, 2, 3) Vitamin D participates importantly in calcium homeostasis, skeletal metabolism, and the function of immune, cardiovascular and reproductive systems. (2) Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also research-related to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) It responds well to vitamin D3 supplementation. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Chiropractic Associates notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status as well. Preston chiropractic care at Chiropractic Associates benefits Preston chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is shown to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers suggest that vitamin D may be beneficial for other such conditions beyond just depression like schizophrenia, cognitive disturbances, attention deficit disorder, and autism. (1) Providing a daily level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Chiropractic Associates sees how these benefits are worth the work our Preston chiropractic patients would accept to raise low vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed that consuming calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by those with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The elevation was witnessed as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side finding in this study: It is difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants did what they were to do for the three months of the study! (6)
