Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It’s a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it affects 1 billion of us 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. Minster Chiropractic Center encourages our Minster chiropractic patients to know and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Minster Chiropractic Center is confident that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated 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 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-connected to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) It responds well to vitamin D3 supplementation. Testing for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Minster Chiropractic Center notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status as well. Minster chiropractic care at Minster Chiropractic Center benefits Minster 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 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 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) Minster Chiropractic Center acknowledges how these benefits are worth the effort our Minster chiropractic patients would take on to elevate poor 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 greater than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels increase. The rise was seen within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants took the recommended supplements for the three months of the study! (6)
