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 linked to a wide assortment of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Malverne Health & Wellness encourages our Malverne chiropractic patients to check and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels. Malverne Health & Wellness 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 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 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) 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) Malverne Health & Wellness notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being influenced by vitamin D status as well. Malverne chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness benefits Malverne 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) Providing a daily level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Malverne Health & Wellness acknowledges how these benefits are worth the effort our Malverne chiropractic patients would undertake to elevate poor 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 patients with levels of greater than 20 ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was seen within the first 30 days of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It is hard to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants took the recommended supplements for the three months of the study! (6)
