Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It is a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 14% of the world population has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One study reports that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a varied range of diseases. Improving vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Mandeville Chiropractic encourages our Mandeville chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Mandeville Chiropractic is confident that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread vitamin D deficiency is correlated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like lung, pancreatic, colorectal, kidney, breast 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 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-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) Mandeville Chiropractic notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status too. Mandeville chiropractic care at Mandeville Chiropractic benefits Mandeville chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF IMPROVING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is shown to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers propose 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 same dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Mandeville Chiropractic acknowledges how these benefits are worth the work our Mandeville chiropractic patients would accept to elevate low vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed that taking calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of vitamin D by patients with levels of more than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was witnessed in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side finding in this study: It is difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the study! (6)
