Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 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 linked to a varied assortment of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Chiropractic Care encourages our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Chiropractic Care is confident that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic 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 as well. (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-connected to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Chiropractic Care notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status too. West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care benefits West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is documented 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) Giving a daily equal dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 alleviates symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Chiropractic Care sees how these benefits are worth the work our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients would take on to elevate poor vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women showed 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 raise. The elevation was seen in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study women did what they were to do for the three months of the study! (6)
