Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14% of the world population has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a wide assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages our Millville chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Wilson Family Chiropractic 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 breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic is associated with 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 plays a key role 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) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Testing for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status too. Millville chiropractic care at Wilson Family Chiropractic benefits Millville chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF IMPROVING 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 for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Wilson Family Chiropractic acknowledges how these benefits are worth the work our Millville chiropractic patients would accept to raise 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 patients with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was witnessed in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side finding in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the study!
